Whitney joined CCNB in November 2020. Since then, she has steadily been working her way up, earning multiple months of perfect attendance awards and her Sawyer II certification. Her sawyer skills came in handy as she worked many hours on our Sonoma Resource Conservation District project in the Tubbs Fire Zone­­, reducing fire fuels and clearing burned lands. She is always up for a new project, especially anything that involves the chipper.

Whitney is a dedicated and hard worker, and her supervisor points out how much Whitney has grown in the past few months. For example, when she first started, she was very nervous on the chainsaw–with shaky hands and a quiet yell. Now Whitney teaches others all the tips and tricks while making sure everyone on the crew is being safe. She has grown so much as a leader, and we are excited to see all she can do!
