Her favorite things to do are: spend time with family, sew, do crafts, cook and read. Her grandfather’s best friend, since childhood, Frank Skinner, wrote the music to “Gone With The Wind”.

Naomi grew up in Santa Cruz and attended Del Mar Elementary School, Shoreline Middle School and Soquel High School.  After finishing her AA in History from Cabrillo she transferred to UC Davis where she earned her BA in History with a double minor in Professional Writing and Latin American Studies.  She studied abroad in Cuba and traveled to Loreto Mexico to learn about the cultures that interest her.  After substitute teaching in Dixon and Sacramento, CA, she moved back to Santa Cruz to work in Santa Cruz City Schools.  When she isn't in the front office, she can be found crocheting, reading, waling on the beach, or writing short stories for her blog.  Her ultimate goal is to travel to Morocco to see where her dad grew up and venture to Ireland to see her mother's familiy.

Jasmine was born and raised in Watsonville. Most of her family lives here as well. She is the oldest of 5 siblings, and she is grateful because she gets to watch them grow up and be there with them through it all. She got her first job at 18 as an accountant at a bicycle repair shop, where she worked for 3 years.  At the age of 21, she moved to Soledad and worked for the school district for 3 another 3 years. She just move back to Watsonville in December of 2020 and is so happy to be back near family and friend again!  She started working at Gault in December of 2020 and I am very thankful for this because everyone here is wonderful and I get to gain a new experience working as the Health Office Assistant. Also, my favorite animal is a Dolphin...Coincidence? I think not.
