Academic Experience: 

Adjunct Instructor - Santa Rosa Junior Collge

As a Sonoma County native and 3rd generation agriculturalist, I am very involved in the agriculture industry. My husband and I farm Pinot Noir grapes in the Sonoma Coast appellation. We recently started our own winery called James Family Cellars. Since I was young, I have been an advocate for local farmers and growers. My passion is preserving agriculture in Sonoma County through leadership and involvement in several agricultural and civic organizations throughout California.

Our two boys are active in 4-H and have several animal projects.

I have enjoyed being an adjunct instructor for more than seven years.
