West Valley & Mountain Communities District Director
Fiona Nagle is responsible for constituent services in the San Fernando Valley west of the 405 freeway to the Ventura County line and in the Santa Monica Mountains from the 101 freeway corridor to the Pacific Ocean.
For over 20 years, Fiona’s professional work has been devoted to protecting people and planet by bringing together people of divergent viewpoints and enabling them to come to a consensus that promotes environmental health, human quality of life, and respect for differing values. Much of this has been done while leading environmental non-profits. Among others, she served for 11 years with the International Society for Conservation Biology: sitting on the global Board of Governors and the North America Board of Directors; developing the Chapters Program for local on-the-ground conservation; co-writing the Society’s 2010 Strategic Plan; and co-organizing multiple large international conferences. She also spent two life-changing weeks as a United Nations’ Observer at COP 15, the 2009 climate change negotiations in Copenhagen.
Fiona also has experience as an entrepreneur, having started several successful small businesses, and in government as an associate environmental planner for Caltrans District 7. At Caltrans, she worked on high profile projects including the Liberty Canyon Wildlife Crossing in Agoura Hills and the Topanga Canyon Boulevard Roadside Committee. As part of Team Kuehl, her service area now includes Topanga, Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Hidden Hills, Malibu, Westlake Village, and portions of Los Angeles in western San Fernando Valley.
Fiona grew up in Silverlake/Los Feliz and has traveled throughout five continents. She has a Ph.D. in conservation biology and conflict management, with expertise in environmental dispute resolution.
