Leadership & Staff

  • Born and raised in Sonoma County, I am proud to live, work and raise my children in this community. I appreciate that my education and career path in the nonprofit sector has led me to the Redwood Empire Food Bank. It is the work of our community, with a daily goal of doing better, doing more and giving to those who need a bit of help, a smile and someone to share their story.

  • My dedication to giving back and my background in public health led me to the Redwood Empire Food Bank. I value our work in breaking food insecurity cycles in our community. Every day, I’m surrounded by colleagues, volunteers, and supporters who genuinely care about our neighbors and work to improve each individual’s quality of life. I’m proud to lead our efforts and be part of this community.

  • Before I had the privilege of joining the Redwood Empire Food Bank team, I was a faithful donor and believer in our mission. I have worked in the area of finance for a number of for-profit companies for over 30 years. The opportunity to contribute here has been the most rewarding years of my career.

  • Sonoma County has been my home since 1988 when my husband and I relocated from Washington State. Our love for Northern California, Sonoma County and this community runs deep in our souls, surrounded by family and friends and this beautiful landscape.

    I’m proud to call myself a Hunger Relief Worker, who also works in the capacity of a leader in this organization. With my 20 years of experience as an Operational professional in the for-profit space, it’s gratifying and rewarding to put that experience and knowledge into the work that we do here to end hunger in our community.

  • As a Sonoma County native, giving back to the community for which I live and work is both gratifying and rewarding. I worked in the for-profit space for over 20 years prior to joining the Redwood Empire Food Bank team and I’m grateful to be able to use that experience to support our neighbors in need. It is a great honor to be a Hunger Relief Worker and help positively impact our community.
