Gresham, who joined Braun & Associates in 2004, was instrumental in bringing about the historic Dahlstrom Ranch conservation easement, a rare collaboration between a private landowner, a county, a federal agency, and a city to protect drinking water and provide public open space. She oversees the firm’s unique Ecological Laboratory program which arranges partnerships between rural landowners with research universities. Since the program’s inception in 2004 it has grown tenfold, and Gresham has successfully achieved EcoLab status for 394 landowners, secured over 60,000 acres of land for ecological research and gained approval for EcoLab applications in 51 different appraisal districts. Gresham also leads the firm’s lobbying practice where she has worked on four successful bond-election campaigns, raising more than $100 million for central Texas open space, parks and water quality. Along with other members of the Braun & Gresham team, Gresham is actively representing landowners across Texas threatened by proposed transmission lines.
Prior to joining Braun & Associates, Gresham served on the staff of former Texas Lieutenant Governor Bill Ratliff. She is a graduate of the University of Texas School of Law, where she served as Co-Editor-in-Chief for the State Bar of Texas’ Texas Environmental Law Journal.
