Jill will be serving as the State Supervisor until a new State Supervisor arrives to replace Bob Williams who retired in December 2010.

Jill Ralston, originally from upstate New York, near the southern border of Adirondack Park, arrived at the Nevada Fish and Wildlife Office in November 2010. Jill came to the Service from the Bureau of Land Management, Jarbidge Field Office in Twin Falls, Idaho, where she served as the Assistant Field Manager.

Jill has a Bachelor’s degree in Geology from Minnesota’s Winona State University and a Master’s degree in Hydrology from the University of Nevada, Reno. She began her federal career with the Forest Service as a hydrologist for the Bly and Lakeview Ranger Districts in Oregon. She then moved to the BLM in Roseburg, Oregon as a hydrologist and later transitioned to a supervisory position as a multi-resource specialist.

"I am proud of the role that federal agencies play in public land management and species conservation," said Jill. "I feel fortunate to work with people who are passionate about the work that they do."
