A Northern California native, Eric settled in Cameron Park in the summer of 2005 with his wife and two sons. He served as a pastor at Church of the Foothills for 9 years, then returned to education as the Director for Simpson University’s Woodland Regional Center in 2015. After teaching for a year at Rolling Hills Middle School in El Dorado Hills, he is now the Life Skills and AVID teacher at Edwin Markham Middle School in Placerville. Whether it was while living in Southern California, Kentucky, or New York, Eric has always been engaged in his community. He was a coach with Prospector Soccer for 10 years, treasurer for the Ponderosa Choir Boosters, and has supported his sons through sports and music in the community as they have attended Rescue Elementary, Pleasant Grove Middle, and Ponderosa High School. It was his work with Simpson University in Woodland that ignited his fire to serve with local governance. “As Director for the university’s regional center, I was invited into leadership circles with education and the Woodland city council. That gave me valuable experience understanding local and regional needs and insight into long-term planning. It not only engaged me in the process but helped me see my affinity for it, both in the wide-range of issues involved and the need for skilled relationship building. I got very excited about it and wanted to bring that to my home community.” “After being engaged with CSD board meetings for 2 years and serving on a few committees and panels, I’m really grateful for the opportunity to serve this appointed term. With the challenges we face, I look forward to working with our board and staff to steward our resources well, engage our residents and strengthen our community identity.
