Last week, the U.S. Senate confirmed Martha Williams as the director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Williams has been serving as Principal Deputy Director of the Fish and Wildlife Service since January 20, 2021. She was nominated for director in October 2021 and her confirmation process was uncontroversial. 

Williams began her career as an  attorney for Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks, then served as Deputy Solicitor Parks and Wildlife at the Department of the Interior and worked as a professor at the Blewett School of Law at the University of Montana. Most recently, she was Director of Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks.
