Isabel moved to Sonoma County as a child and immediately fell in love with the surrounding wildlife and environment. Exploring most of California with her family at a young age she learned to appreciate the different ecosystems that surrounded her. Graduating from Sonoma State University with a B.S in Marine Biology she promptly started as an intern in the environmental conservation field. Isabel has spent more than 15 years either interning, volunteering or working in nonprofits assisting, managing, teaching and training in multiple environmental organizations. Her leadership skills come naturally and she enjoys problem solving. Isabel is eager to learn and educate the public on the importance of our local native environments. Joining Pepperwood is an exciting new step where she hopes to learn, grow and continue to support our local lands. Focusing on finance and operations, Isabel supports Pepperwood’s growth. She enjoys arts, crafts, hiking and venturing out to our gorgeous coasts on her free days!
