New Faces New Skills Great Heart!
From a very young age, I have been interested in really old things. Working with the Angels Camp Museum Foundation to protect, preserve, and promote the incredible collection at the Angels Camp Museum is a way for me to direct my passion for the past and the rich history of Calaveras County. In addition to antique objects and the stories about the people who used them, I love the beautiful gardens and plants found around many of the older homes in the County. Cultivating history through horticulture is an activity that brings me great joy. I am looking forward to working with this active, outgoing, and ambitious Board to continue to help make great things happen at the Angels Camp Museum.
I am a California Native Son and I have always been interested in our state’s history. Since moving to Angels Camp some 25 years ago, I was amazed to learn of the rich history of the town and Calaveras County in general. I first joined the Museum as a docent in 2014 and had the opportunity to learn more about the area from staff during formal and informal training. I have served on the Angels Camp Museum Commission and the Angels Camp City Council including my last year in office (2020), as Mayor.
I’m pleased to be joining the Angels Camp Museum Foundation Board and I look forward to helping the Board carry out its mission and achieve its objectives.
I look forward to continuing to serve the community!
I was charmed by the Angels Camp Museum on my very first trip to Calaveras County. Here lay objects that were invented, built, used, and cherished by people from our past. Here were ingenious tools on which their lives depended plus stories of triumph and tragedy. It’s a real treat for the imagination.
After a long career in business communications, I wanted to use my writing skills in a new way. Moving from business writing to grant writing is a perfect fit. It’s a real privilege to join the dedicated folks on the Angels Camp Museum Foundation Board. Let’s continue to bring history to life!
