Anastasia Pryor

Director of Development and Communications

Anastasia works with her team to raise Conservation Corps North Bay’s private funding and to share about CCNB’s work with its partners, donors, and community. She comes with more than 20 years of experience working in Marin and Sonoma Counties. Her “first career” working in advertising and marketing for local media outlets including The Marin Independent Journal and The Press Democrat laid the foundation for her future work in community engagement and fundraising in the nonprofit sector.

Anastasia was most recently Director of Development at Bergin University of Canine Studies, where she significantly increased revenues while structuring a marketing and public relations plan. As Institutional Giving Officer at Yosemite Conservancy, Anastasia raised over $3 million for environmental restoration projects in one year by stewarding existing donors and building new relationships with corporate and foundation partners. Prior to that, she was Assistant Development Director at Sunny Hills Services in San Anselmo where she developed her passion for helping young people lead healthy and successful lives.

Anastasia is a graduate of the Novato and Santa Rosa Chamber Leadership Programs, is a member of the Leadership Santa Rosa Alumni Association, and has served as PR Committee Co-Chair for the Rotary Club of Oakland. She holds a BA from University of California at Berkeley.

Sheila Walsh

Operations and Evaluation Manager

Sheila joined CCNB in 2018 to design and manage the organization’s data and evaluation systems. This helps CCNB use information about corpsmembers and their experiences in the program to better support corpsmembers on an individual level and for organization-wide decision making. Sheila also guides CCNB’s participation in external evaluation projects, such as the Listen4Good national study to help nonprofits gather feedback from their participants and use that data for program improvements.

Sheila previously spent 10 years as an external evaluator, providing consulting services to nonprofits and foundations in the Bay Area and around the nation. Through this work, she realized the importance of working within a nonprofit to develop strong data tracking systems that balanced gathering key pieces of information and making use of that information without overburdening staff.

Oona O’Neill

Development Coordinator

Oona joined the CCNB Development Team in late July of 2023. She grew up exploring the natural beauty of Sonoma County and the Bay Area while helping her uncle with construction and restoration projects across the county.

She received her BA in Medieval History from UC Santa Cruz, worked as a school tour guide for an Egyptian Museum, and spent the last 10 years as the Equestrian Director, Office Manager and Fundraising Coordinator for a non-profit summer camp in the Sierra Foothills. What do these experiences have in common? A passion for youth development and a love for the natural world.

In her free time, Oona enjoys going on walks, reading, and teaching riding and horsemanship to children.
