Notable quote: “I have a unique background as my education is in the geology and environmental sciences field, which propelled me to land use planning and cultural tourism work in rural communities and counties throughout the Sierra Nevada. During this time I grew to understand and connect the social, economic and natural world and assist communities and groups with planning for a prosperous future that nurtured these three distinct principles.” (Source: LinkedIn)
