Welcome Aboard


We’ve all heard the saying “Third time’s the charm.” This statement rang true during October in a mutually beneficial manner when Jenna Merry resumed working at the La Crosse FWCO … now as a permanent employee! Jenna first began working here during the summer of 2010 as a Student Temporary Employee while enrolled as an undergraduate at Winona State University. She returned to work here again in 2012, on a part-time basis, while enrolled in graduate studies at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse where she earned a Master of Science degree (Biology) in 2015. Jenna left our office earlier this year to work briefly for the Carterville FWCO in Wilmington, Illinois, where her primary duty was keeping Asian carp out of the Great Lakes. Jenna is a now a fishery biologist at our office whose focus will be to help prevent/control the spread of aquatic invasive species in the Upper Mississippi River Basin. Welcome home and back on board!
