I work for the Insurance Information Institute, www.iii.org and am the Director of Communications.
We are based in New York, I am based in Northern California and oversee the state. I work with the National Firewise USA Program and the California Fire Safe Councils to help the public learn more about wildfire preparedness, mitigation, prevention, etc.

Locally, I am part of the Firewise Committee in Hidden Valley Lake, CA and the South Lake Fire Safe Council.

I contributed to CAL FIRE’s readyforfire website regarding financial preparedness. I participated with Firewise to do a national webinar on financial preparedness for wildfire in 2018 and put on a workshop at the Santa Rosa Junior College Safety Training Center on hardening homes in 2019.

Wildfire Preparedness Event

Placer County - event at Home Depot to teach people how to 'retrofit' their home to be resistant to wildfire. Still in the early planning for mid to late September.
