Westborough-icon-for-CA-web-pageWestborough – The Board of Selectmen appointed Kathleen Theoharides to a one-year term as an associate member of the Conservation Commission during its April 23 meeting.

Requested for appointment by Conservation Commission Chairman Andrew Koenigsberg, Theoharides will serve a term ending June 30, 2014 as an associate member, meaning she be a non-voting member of the commission.

Koenigsberg said the commission voted to appoint Theoharides after she appeared before them during a meeting last month.

“She has a very extensive CV that makes the rest of us look like a bunch of dilettantes,” Koenigsberg quipped.

Theoharides holds a bachelor's degree in ecology from Dartmouth College and a master's degree in environmental biology from the University of Massachusetts. According to her website www.theoharidesconsulting.com, Theoharides served as the executive director of the Hilltown Land Trust in Ashfield, before starting her own conservation consulting company.

When asked what prompted her to decide to serve on the commission, Theoharides cited involvement.

“I's been interested in serving on the Conservation Commission for a while,” she told the selectmen. “Since I's consulting on my own now, I don's interact as much with local communities as I used to.”
