Throughout my career in public accounting, I have spent as much time as possible exploring the natural world. I discovered Anza Borrego Desert State Park during my college years and fell in love. Some favorite moments from time spent in ABDSP have been hiking Indian Head Mountain, exploring washes and slot canyons, camping with friends and family, botanizing and birding, and listening to the desert sounds. I have been involved with ABF for many years. It is important to me to foster a love for nature, wilderness, and public parklands in others. As a volunteer, I get to help support that work and the mission of the organization.
