Orli Gottleib | President 

"I am so excited for the opportunities that Mill City Park can bring to Franklin and the surrounding communities.

I grew up exploring trails and waterways in New Hampshire, but didn't discover whitewater kayaking until after I moved to Boston for college. There are so many things I love about whitewater. The sport pushed me to study fluid mechanics and hydrology in college. I graduated from Tufts University in 2013 with a BS in Environmental Engineering and landed my dream job at Alden, a fluid mechanics lab / engineering company.

As a kayaker, an engineer, and a community member, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to contribute to this project."

Kyle matzke | Vice President

Kyle was born here in the state of New Hampshire and has deep roots in the Franklin Community.

He has a degree in  Business Administration from Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont and graduated from Yamnuska Mountain Guiding School in Canmore, Alberta.

Kyle’s passion for the outdoors runs deep, whether it is racing mountain bikes on the Northeast circuit, chasing powder at the ski hills, or fly fishing all the beautiful water that surrounds our community, you can often find him out in the field.
