Grantmaking and Nonprofit Resources
I grew up in and around Del Norte County and greater Northern California. The importance of thinking of and caring for our world and all its inhabitants has been instilled in me from a young age. My earliest memories are of my desire to help my community, especially the youth. I grew up understanding how important our natural world and each living being is.
After attending the University of Oregon and Humboldt State University, I supported my childhood goal for nearly two decades as a professional educator in Humboldt and Del Norte Counties. I taught in all grades TK-12, and also was a program director and an administrator. In that profession, I was able to develop deep bonds with many and support all parts of my community.
As I transitioned into a new role it was important for me to hold tight to those connections I made and continue supporting and be of service to my community. I am excited to be a part of the team at HAF doing just that.
