Diane Gallegos, the chief operating officer for Habitat for Humanity Seattle South King County, has been named the executive director of Wolf Haven International.
Gallegos assumes her new position Jan. 3 after 11 years with Habitat for Humanity. Earlier in her career, she worked as a biologist for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
“We are excited by her training and experience in biology and with environmental issues and her many years of executive level experience with not for profit organizations,” Wolf Haven board president Steve Siera said in announcing the hire Wednesday.
Wolf Haven is a sanctuary for captive-born wolves near Tenino.
