OHP Hello and Farewell
We want to take a moment to note some staff changes here at the OHP.
Recently we welcomed Greg Bills to the office as our Fiscal and Grants Coordinator. Greg came to us from the Budgets office of California State Parks. Originally a native of southern California, Greg moved to Sacramento to earn a degree in Communications and Marketing from California State University Sacramento, and now lives here with his wife, daughter, and son. When not at work, Greg enjoys time with family, and following the progress of Crimson Tide football at the University of Alabama where his daughter is a student. We are delighted to have him join the OHP team.

Also new to the OHP are Danielle Claus and Katie Gilroy, both working as Graduate Student Assistants in our Information Management Unit. Danielle splits her time between Sacramento and Sonoma where she is earning a degree in Cultural Resources Management from California State University Sonoma. Katie lives in Sacramento, attending California State University Sacramento as a student in the Public History Program, with an emphasis on archives. We admire their dedication to their studies and the OHP!

As we welcomed new faces to the office, we bid farewell to some familiar faces as well. Kathleen Forrest and Jessica Tudor Elliott moved on to well-deserved career advancements outside the OHP. We wish them well in their new ventures!
