BLM High Desert District Welcomes New Associate District Manager

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is pleased to announce that Jodi Camrud has joined the High Desert District (HDD) as its new associate district manager (ADM).

HDD District Manager John Ruhs states, “We welcome Jodi to the HDD and look forward to the contributions her diverse skill mix will bring to the BLM’s management of public lands in southwest Wyoming.”

Camrud began her BLM career at Montana’s Miles City Field Office as an information technology specialist after stints with the Office of Trust Fund Management and the Indian Health Service. She then took on the positions of field station manager in Havre, Mont., chief information officer and supervisory information technology specialist in the Montana State Office, and, most recently, program analyst for the BLM’s national land mobile radio program. She is “excited to join the BLM HDD team and the community of Rock Springs.”

Raised in Montana and North Dakota, Camrud is a graduate of Montana State University. She served active duty in the U.S. Coast Guard and was a reservist in the U.S. Army and U.S. Navy Reserves and the Montana Army National Guard. When not working, Camrud enjoys spending time with her family.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2015, the BLM generated $4.1 billion in receipts from activities occurring on public lands.
