Working for Natural Resources Defense Council, Sierra Club, and Greater Yellowstone Coalition, and Center for Biological Diversity Louisa has advocated for preservation of wilderness and wild animals of the Northern Rockies for over 40 years.

In 2015, Louisa and her husband Dr. David Mattson started Grizzly Times, www.grizzlytimes.org, and a podcast, https://www.grizzlytimespodcast.org/, to provide a voice for grizzly bears and the wild. Louisa has a BA from Williams College and a Masters of Forest Policy from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. In 2014, she received a lifetime achievement award from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.
