Deborah brings with her over 15 years of experience fundraising to protect special places in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Previously she directed the Institutional Giving program at Save the Redwoods League, raising significant private and public capital for land acquisition, environmental education, scientific research, and California State Park enhancement projects. Before that she held positions as Annual Fund Director and Communications Director at Marin Agricultural Land Trust and served as the lead fundraiser at the Point Reyes National Seashore Association.
A New England native with a degree in Art History from Boston University, Deborah credits her lifelong love of nature to her childhood in coastal Rhode Island exploring tidepools, beaches, and nature preserves with her family. She now lives in Orinda and is excited to be working to create lasting support and connections for the irreplaceable Diablo Wilderness in her own back yard.
