Sandy Greene joined Tri County Wildlife Care in 2012 as their grant writer. Impressed by the group’s accomplishments and dedication to wildlife, she is inspired to share their story with other wildlife advocates. Sandy’s career background in organizational and financial processes helps TCWC move towards their current and future goals and her love of birds makes her a natural fit.
Lynda Cook has been on the Board of Directors since 2004. Lynda became interested in Tri County Wildlife Care because of her love of wildlife and feeling that she could make a difference in the organization. She has many years experience working with non-profit organizations as well as running a successful mortgage company prior to her retirement.
Michelle Gallaher joined TCWC in 2017 to help in the baby bird nursery. She has always had a love for animals her entire life. At one point she had 14 pets and drove her parents crazy because she always brought animals home. Michelle is a Jane of all trades and is very creative. She has done it all from being an actual animal in a costume at the San Diego Zoo to pet sitting, photographer, DJ, builder, Halloween prop master, bus driver, librarian, afterschool programmer, code enforcement, coach, etc. Her mission with TCWC is to give our critters a 2nd chance at life and make friends while doing it!
Alba Arosio has been with Tri County Wildlife Care since 2002 and brings her diversified business expertise to the organization. She loves animals and one of her goals is to ensure that future generations in the tri-counties are able to enjoy and appreciate the local wildlife.
Pam Hirschel joined TCWC in 2012 because she wanted to get back to caring for sick or injured wildlife. She has a background in Animal Training and Management and a BS in Physical Anthropology, which brings a wealth of knowledge and skill to our organization. Also, as a small business owner, Pam’s financial and management experience makes her a great addition to the board.
Robin Rehart brings a wealth of nonprofit experience to TCWC. She loves animals and looks forward to helping animals have a 2nd chance. Robin has some hidden talents most people don't know about. She is a talented painter, jeweler, seamstress, doll maker, and makes pottery and ceramics. She is enthusiastic, high-energy and detail-oriented which are qualities every successful organization needs and welcomes.

Director of Animal Care
Susan Manning is the owner of the Feed Barn Country Store in Jackson, California and became involved with Tri County Wildlife Care in 1994 when the group asked her to discount feed for wildlife. She and her husband John currently provide an area in the Feed Barn for the public to take injured, ill, and orphaned critters to be stabilized before moving them on to a specialty team. Susan has a great love of wildlife and feels this is
a way to give back to the community.
Director of Social Media Development
Elisabeth (Beth) Anderson is currently a Computer Resource teacher for the Elk Grove Unified School District. She discovered Tri County Wildlife Care when seeking help for a sick turkey vulture. Beth loves animals and has spent years running across roads to rescue them. It was inevitable she would come to volunteer for a wildlife rescue and rehabilitation organization.
