John gets to work from home!

I’m very excited to announce that I’ve transferred to Conservation Biology Institute! More about that below.

But first, this has huge implications for our family:  I get to work from home!  This means I do not have to commute to San Francisco, so we can move to an area we can afford.  I remember in my Valedictorian speech I thanked Mendocino for being a great place to grow up, dedicated my life to biodiversity conservation, and said that I hope to return someday.  Now might be that opportunity!  It would be a long way from meetings with clients and donors, but I’m hopeful that it will have many benefits in community and family that yield a balance.

There are so many people and places in Mendocino I’d love to reconnect with and introduce my family to… I hope this works out.

We are thinking of putting an offer in on a house, but doubt it will be accepted due to our tight budget.  If anyone knows of a place for sale that we could move our family and goats to, please see the connections page.

More about the new job:

While The Wilderness Society is working for a noble cause,  this is a much better fit for my skills, expertise, and direction.  I feel that as a whole, the movement will be better off with me in this new position at CBI.  They “provide scientific expertise to support the conservation and recovery of biological diversity in its natural state through applied research, education, planning, and community service.”
