Christine Riley: Board President

Christine joined us first to deepen her wilderness skills in our adult wilderness classes and soon she saw the value we had in our youth camps and school. Every chance she could she would have us working with her two preteen girls.

She sees the value sharing her love of the forest, rivers, ocean on foot with her kids. She also sees the value of letting her kids follow their own passions in horses, wrestling, jiu-juitsu and music. She also understands the importance of her kids being connected to their food through their home flock of chickens. On her own she has been working at what we have been doing but on a much smaller scale.

She understands the long term benefits not only for her own family but to others we serve so she stepped up to the plate with her endless hospitality, time, and financial support.

She has a deep and broad commitment with community service is a Lead for Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) and a key moderator for her community’s social media group.

Christine brings with her the day to day experiences and skills she has in her position as Coordinator for the international not-for-profit-corporation Z–Wave Alliance, Inc.
