In this episode Eric speaks with Kalispell City Councilman Kyle Waterman. Kyle talks about his experience as a leader on the Flathead City-County Health Board during the worst stretches of the COVID-19 pandemic, the resources and opportunities that underpin the rapid growth of Kalispell’s economy, why he returned to Montana after spending 20 years of his adult life outside his home state, why mental health issues are deeply important to him, and much more.
Eric, a graduate of Leadership Montana Class of 2016 and Masters Class 2019, leads this project with an unmatched curiosity and thirst for learning how each interviewee leans into leading. Eric magically brings to life the story underneath the words and weaves together a series that perfectly illustrates the meaning and value of listening deeply. Originally from Billings, Eric currently resides in Missoula where he serves as the Communications and Development Administrator for Partnership Health Center.
Waterman was born in Montana and returned to Kalispell ten years ago. He’s been involved in the community through social services and as an advocate for local solutions on Kalispell City Council.
