She graduated from San Jose State University with a bachelor’s degree in accounting and in 1993 moved from the Bay Area to Davis and traded high tech for agriculture. Over the past 20 years she has held various financial positions with producers, processors and distributors in the ag industry.

Moore, the other new board member, is a vice president and key relationship manager for Farm Credit West in its Woodland office. He is a California and Yolo County native who was raised in Davis. He graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a bachelor’s degree in agricultural management and has worked in the Farm Credit system for more than 31 years in various lending and management capacities.

Yolo Land Trust celebrates 25 years as one of the leading agricultural land trusts in California. Founded in 1988 by a group of innovative farmers, ranchers, community leaders and conservationists, Yolo Land Trust has helped landowners place conservation easements on more than 50 farm properties throughout Yolo County, permanently conserving the land for future generations of farmers.
