One of the things I find most inspirational about living on the Mendocino Coast — besides the wonderful natural environment — is the level of positive volunteerism. I was particularly impressed by MCAS when I was introduced to some of the volunteers as a seasonal employee with State Parks in 2003. Over the past several years, I've had the pleasure of continuing that relationship, and I hope to contribute what I can to the organization.
I grew up in southern California, then attended Humboldt State University where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Wildlife (minor in Anthropology)... and just had to stay up north. I'm now an Environmental Scientist.
