To Our Ojai Community:

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we recover from the damage from the Thomas Fire on our trails. In the coming months trails will likely open and close depending on rain and changing trail conditions. Click here for current information and trail notifications »

Congratulations, Xena!

As the weather gets warmer, Xena wants to remind everyone that the ground can get very hot for paws. She recommends getting out on the trail early in the morning or in the evening, or investing in some shoes for your furry friends. Otherwise, you might end up carrying them on the trail.

For the last three and a half years, Xena has been an important member of the OVLC’s development team. Whenever you receive an email, a newsletter, or read anything from the OVLC, it has either been written or proofread by Xena. As Xena steps into her new role as Development Associate, Xena will be leading our annual giving program and strengthening our community outreach. Her ability to communicate the OVLC’s message to our community and grantors is an invaluable skill to the
organization. She also keeps us well organized and focused, even if her desk appears to be in chaos.

All of our office volunteers will attest to her skill at managing mailing parties and organizing thank notes. You can also find Xena at many of our events managing legions of volunteers and keeping everything running smoothly. In her spare time, Xena enjoys hiking the trails with her dog Asha, especially near The Thacher School where she lives with her husband Juan and young daughter Cici. Please join us in congratulating Xena in her new role!
