Welcome Courtney Rogaczewski, the New Riveredge Director of Development

Riveredge Nature Center is pleased to welcome our new Director of Development, Courtney Rogaczewski. Courtney started with Riveredge on February 1st.

Courtney began her career in public relations/marketing with Kohl’s Department Stores. She then shifted to corporate philanthropy at Kohl’s Corporate where she oversaw the Kohl’s Cares program. From there, she wanted to be closer to the action and jumped into the nonprofit sector. Courtney then worked in development for a research foundation, then moved into the human services sector by supporting people with disabilities and working in diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives. Her eye was always on marrying her passion for the outdoors with her working life, and we’re fortunate to have her here to blend those interests.

Courtney lives in Slinger with her husband and three sons. She enjoys continuing her 34-year hockey career, stokes her inner Star Wars fangirl, cycles competitively and enjoys hammocking with a book in her lap (read: professional napper). Their family spends all their time outside building trails, playing hockey on the lake, spending nights outside around the fire pit and preserving the woods and lake around their home. Twice annually, they load up the truck and knock two National Parks off their life list.

Welcome Courtney! Courtney can be reached at crogaczewski@riveredge.us.


We should also acknowledge that we say “Ta-ta for now” and maintain an excellent relationship with Natalie Dorrler, the outgoing Riveredge Director of Development. Natalie had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live and work in Peninsula State Park in Door County and we wish her the best – we’re all hoping to visit soon!
