I was born and raised and continue to live and raise my family in the Central Valley of California. The Central Valley continues to be undervalued and over exploited and nothing highlights this more than our current and ongoing water crisis. My work in water advocacy spans over a decade, from the Calaveras to the Kings. My hopes are that there will be a paradigm shift in how agriculture is practiced, that California creates a Water Commons where people and the environment are prioritized, and that my daughter will grow up seeing and appreciating the Valley for all its subtle beauty and its abundant life.
