Testimonials From Our Team:

Barbara Merrill

Energy Efficiency Program Manager/Compliance Officer

Employed since January 1984

“My 38 years at NRWA is due in part to everyone working together as a team – we are not just one person. We truly are a ‘Rural Water Family.’ The learning process continues daily as there is always something new to learn about federal programs and the association.  Working with people across the United States has also allowed me to develop many great working relationships and friendships.”

Vern Steel

Deputy CEO

Employed since August 2021

“Working in Rural Water both at the state level and the national level is an extremely rewarding career. We work with good, salt-of-the-earth people, with a common goal of helping their respective communities. In my position at NRWA, I am excited to be a part of the Rural Water Family and have the opportunity to make sure all of America has access to clean and safe drinking water.”

Kaylyn Branen

Content and Communication Specialist

Employed since June 2022

“When I interviewed for this position, I was told that once people join the NRWA family, they are here for life. It is very evident that NRWA values their employees and have cultivated an environment to grow professionally. As my first job out of college, I didn’t expect to find such a welcoming workplace while also making a difference in the lives of others everyday, but this is something I found at NRWA.”

At NRWA, we offer a variety of career paths to follow and opportunities to advance in our organization.
