Nate Fisher graduated from the University of Idaho earning a BA degree in English Literature. Nate began his career working in Washington, D.C. for then-Representative Larry Craig. He returned to Boise and worked as the executive director of a non-profit, grassroots-created 501(c)(3), The Idaho Council on Industry and Environment for four years. Nate took that experience with him to work for Governor Phil Batt, concentrating on energy/environmental issues affecting the State of Idaho. Nate continued to work for the next three Governors in Idaho, Dirk Kempthorne, James Risch, and Butch Otter.
In 2005, Nate joined Governor Otter’s Office of Species Conservation. In August 2007, Nate was confirmed by the Idaho Legislature and became Governor Otter’s Administrator for the Office of Species Conservation, a Cabinet-level position reporting directly to the Governor. Nate remained in that office for six years, managing and distributing a budget of $15 million to farmers, ranchers, and the conservation community on innovative environmental initiatives in Idaho.
Now as a lobbyist, Nate has worked with clients from Verizon, Fluor, American Kidney Fund, Atlanta Gold Corporation, Thunder Mountain Gold, the Dove Foundation, the Idaho Recyclers, and the Professional Bail Agents in Idaho. In 2016, Nate and his wife, Jean, were the founding members of what is now the Idaho Suicide Prevention Coalition. This coalition has gathered the support of State businesses, leaders, and faith-based communities and has helped to raise the bar for suicide prevention and awareness in Idaho. In the 2016 legislative session, Nate lobbied on behalf of the Coalition for mandated funding the Idaho Suicide Hotline and for a Statewide Office for Suicide Prevention. His efforts resulted in obtaining $960,000 previously unbudgeted dollars for annual statewide suicide prevention and awareness in Idaho.
