I am currently on the board of directors for two societies: Contra Costa County Historical Society and the California Genealogical Society, and past president of the Contra Costa County Genealogy Society. I volunteer with the Contra Costa County Historical Society.
I love working with the environment, volunteering with the California Phenology Project through the John Muir National Park, and planting native gardens with the Friends of Alhambra Creek and the New Leaf Collaborative (a part of the Martinez Unified School District). I am part of the California Phenology Program with California Audubon by volunteering with the Mt. Diablo Audubon Society.
I love teaching and currently give presentations on Using City Directories, Beginning Genealogy, and Breaking Brick Walls Tips.
