Shae’s passion to pursue a career in stewardship began when she discovered the Natural Resource Management program at the Santa Rosa Junior College. Her first experience in the field was a summer internship with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in the Alaskan Kenai National Wildlife Refuge where she worked in the backcountry restoring an extensive network of historic trails. After returning home, she continued her career in restoration working seasonally for the Natural Resources Division of Sonoma County Regional Parks as well as a short season with California State Parks along the Sonoma County coast. In these roles, she developed her skills working on a variety of projects which included invasive species management, fuels reduction, coastal grassland restoration, and a number of other restoration projects across Sonoma County. Before joining the Pepperwood team, she worked for a short time at the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation doing restoration work, vernal pool monitoring, native plant nursery work, and rare endangered species seed amplification. She is also a member of the Good Fire Alliance and has volunteered at several prescribed burns. Shae will continue implementing these skills at Pepperwood and work with the rest of the team to care for the reserve.
