Board of Directors
Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op is run by a seven-person Board of Directors elected by our Co-op members in an annual election held each September. Each Board member is elected for a three-year term and cannot sit on the Board for more than three consecutive terms.
The primary responsibilities of the Board of Directors are to provide overall direction and ensure the long-range security and viability of the Co-op. The Board is responsible for developing policies necessary to carry out the duties of the Board and the functions of the cooperative.

Our Co-op is a community icon for good food, a positive working environment and people who are willing to be involved for greater social good. I’m proud to say I’m a Co‑op member and even more proud to let folks know I serve on the board of directors. The opportunity to serve and give to others is what draws me to participate on the board. I look forward to working with new board members to make all Co-op members proud of who we are and what we symbolize.
I am pleased and honored to be representing the Co-op members and contributing to this community by serving on the Board of Directors. I look forward to working (and shopping) with the other Board members and all of you.
As a Board member for the SNFC I will further promote the values of the cooperative. In particular, I will strive to expand educational opportunities and help the Co-op become more connected to the Sacramento community.
I love the coming together of the delicious food and the great people in this wonderful organization, and I am proud to represent you as we lead the co-op forward.
When I became a member in 2004, I invested in the Co-op for more than the economic benefits I receive as a member. I did so because I respect the Co-op’s values of co-operative economics, sustainability and ethical business practices. As a mother, I am even more invested in the Co-op because I want my daughter’s generation to count on it as I have done for years. I want to help guide the Co-op towards a successful future while adhering to its founding co-operative values.
I can be found at the Sacramento Natural Foods Cooperative (SNFC) daily, enjoying the best and freshest produce that the Sacramento Valley has to offer for me and my family. I believe that supporting our local growers in a cooperative like the SNFC is an important part of helping us keep a balanced and healthy lifestyle. I raised my son in and around this community and as a Member, I want to see that the SNFC remain successful and is around for future generations to enjoy
As a Board member, I look forward to furthering the goals of the cooperative and promoting the values of the cooperative in the community. I am keenly interested in strengthening the financial position of the cooperative to ensure our longevity and ability to provide food, education and community service in an ethical and sustainable fashion. I am excited to represent the members and work with all of the Board Directors to accomplish these goals.
