Position:  Executive Director
Jennifer Szeliga, Executive Director

Jennifer is a native of the East Coast, who landed in California after following her passion for service to the West Coast. Prior to working at the Coastal San Luis RCD (CSLRCD), Jennifer worked for seven years at Sacramento Tree Foundation in several roles, including her last position as Director of Operations.

Prior to the Tree Foundation, Jennifer spent more than 18 years working with the AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps. While this work was not directly related to her environmentally focused undergraduate studies, Jennifer found her way back to working full-time in the environmental arena through her work with urban wood utilization and the urban forest. 

Jennifer is excited to continue her environmentally focused journey through her work in natural resource management and conservation with the CSLRCD. Jennifer holds a B.S. in Environmental Studies from Allegheny College and an M.A. in Organizational Management from the University of Phoenix.

In her non-work time, Jennifer enjoys reading, the great outdoors—especially the beach or any other place that has water—traveling and snuggling with her fur babies.
