After living in the Bay Area for many years, we bought a small farm in Grass Valley and moved here permanently in October 2021. We absolutely love the beauty and peacefulness of our new community.
My career has been in advertising and marketing. I have been involved in all aspects including creating brands, being a brand ambassador, developing and executing communications strategies; defining messaging used in all communications - online and offline.
I have been an extremely involved volunteer with children, working as PTA President at two different schools, and a board member for the Alameda Education Foundation and the Alameda Soccer Club. I currently volunteer for Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, a nationwide group of over 8 million volunteers working towards common sense gun laws.
I am so excited to help United Way of Nevada County provide strong support to our local community partners and fill in any gaps in our social services. It’s important to me that everyone in the County knows we are here to help.
I grew up in Nevada County and upon returning in 2018, I opened the Law Office of Beau Mayfield in Penn Valley. In coming back to our close-knit community, I continue to find it important to look out for one another and to do all that you can to make this community feel like home for all of Nevada County’s citizens, and particularly for those that need a helping hand.
Currently, my law practice is primarily focused on estate planning (wills and trusts), business and personal injury. I believe in three pillars of practicing law; ethical advice, practical legal counsel, and to be a neighbor first and an attorney second. I also teach a business law class as a part-time faculty member of Sierra College.
My career experience includes a judicial clerkship in the First Circuit-State of Hawai'i for the Honorable Judge Edward H. Kubo Jr, partner and founder of Mayfield and Yen, LLP, and Chief Compliance Officer and General Counsel for GWG Holdings, Inc., a publicly listed financial services firm. While at GWG, I also served as the Acting Secretary and managed Board communications, meeting minutes, and Board resolutions for the SEC regulated public company. I graduated in 2008 from the University of the Pacific-McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento, California and completed my undergrad degree in Native American Studies at UC-Davis.
I enjoy spending my free time with my growing family, wife Sue and two young children. I also enjoy golfing, gardening and every activity that explores the outdoor wonder of the Sierras (fishing, camping, and hiking).
Josh Bostic is a Quality Assurance Engineer at Telestream and a long time UWNC volunteer deeply committed to relieving food insecurity in our community.
Josh graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno, in Computer Science. He is also a long-distance runner, recently finishing the California International Marathon in Sacramento.
Josh's ongoing volunteer and leadership experience with UWNC programs has been invaluable to the organization. He brings a unique perspective of our community to the Board which is vital to our continuing growth and development.
I was born and raised on the island of Trinidad and Tobago, located in the Caribbean. Both my parents were educators, so naturally, education was a forgone priority in my upbringing. I graduated with a B.S. in Psychology from California State University, Sacramento, and a Master’s degree in Business Administration (MBA) from Metropolitan State University in Minneapolis, MN. I am a Realtor at Coldwell Banker Grass Roots Realty. My professional background is that of working as an Accountant in the corporate world in Minneapolis, as well as an Internal Auditor for the State of Minnesota, and a Banker at Wells Fargo Bank prior to that. Apart from my professional endeavors, my passion for community involvement has always taken precedence as a personal commitment. In St. Paul, MN, I served on the Board of Ally People Solutions, a local non-profit whose mission is to assist those with intellectual disabilities in the community find job placement.
I live in Penn Valley with my husband and two wonderful children. Our family loves exploring the great outdoors here in this beautiful Gold Country. I am proud to be a part of United Way of Nevada County because of the great programs that we support that help Nevada County’s residents thrive.
I was born and raised in Southern California and attended UC Irvine the first year it opened. In 1970 my husband and I and our two children moved from Southern California to Nevada City when he was hired as a math teacher at Nevada Union High School. After our youngest child was in school I, too, went to work for the Nevada Joint Union High School District, where I worked for 30 years until I retired in 2007. During those years I also finished my degree at CSU Chico.
For 38 years I volunteered with the Schools Insurance Group where I chaired the Employee Benefit Review Committee. After I retired, I finally had the time to do community volunteer work. I was on the Board for Partners in English Language Learning (PiELL), and I had the honor of tutoring a wonderful woman from Peru. And I volunteered at the Food Bank of Nevada County. I became involved with UWNC through the Citizen Review Team process and recognized how vital United Way is to our community and to our non-profit partners.
Currently I volunteer at IFM, am on the AAUW scholarship committee, and I serve on the United Way Board of Directors. I am extremely proud to be on a board with so many dedicated people. Our new programs are phenomenal, and I am excited to be a part of the future of United Way. I love to read, garden and travel. I love Hawaii where snowblowers are unheard of!! I have two cats who are my fur kids and who keep me on my toes!
I moved to Nevada City in 2006 to become River Science Director for SYRCL and have enjoyed a career protecting and restoring rivers and including our beautiful Yuba River watershed. I've also enjoyed raising two children in this wonderful community. I retired from Environmental Science in 2018 and now enjoy the work of property management and volunteerism, as well as more of my favorite activities: hiking, biking, paddling, and skiing.
My father, Si V. Reedy introduced me to the good sense of supporting the United Way during his retirement in Oregon. Following his relocation to Nevada County, it was only natural to support the United Way locally. Since his passing, my mother, Shirley, and I are both especially proud to support the United Way. Volunteering for the Board of Directors is a way for me to support the health of our community. My other volunteer roles include being a Court Appointed Special Advocate and the Sierra Foothills Community Coordinator for the ManKind Project.
I am a native Northern Californian who joined the Air Force in 1987 and returned to California in 2008 as the Director of Operations at Beale Air Force Base where I retired from Active Duty in 2011. I was appointed as Nevada County's Human Resources Director in November 2018. I have over 25 years of experience in human resources in the United States Air Force, Department of Homeland Security, and the Department of Energy.
In my Human Resources role, I have brought several Veterans' Employment and Internship programs to the County. In 2019, I was instrumental in securing preferred employer status with two Department of Defense programs and partnered with the Department of Veterans Affairs to offer the college work-study and vocational rehabilitation internship programs at the County. These strategic partnerships have resulted in over 60 internship opportunities resulting in 5,444,000 hours "interned," over $1.4M in internship funding, and an impressive 67% post internship hire rate.
I have also organized the United Way of Nevada County employee campaign for the last 4 years.
I am married to Misty Rose and have two daughters, Torii, age 21 and Mercedes, age 17.
