Thank you, to the Trinity County community for the warm welcome home and to the District for the opportunity to serve this amazing community, with its wealth of natural resources and deep historical connection to the land.

I am a native of Trinity County – born in Trinity Hospital. I attended Weaverville Elementary School and graduated from Trinity High School in 1990. After high school I attended Shasta College and worked on US Forest Service fire crews in southern Trinity. I attended Humboldt State and graduated with a BS in Environmental Science, Ethics. After college I began work at the Western Shasta Resource Conservation District (WSRCD), working on projects ranging from watershed coordination to fisheries restoration. I spent some time at the Shasta County Department of Resource Management working in the planning department and community education before going back at the WSRCD. Now here I am back home and looking forward to my tenure at the Trinity County RCD.
