Meet the CCA Staff

The dedicated, full-time staff at the California Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) proudly serves California ranchers by sharing their voice at the state capitol and regulatory agencies throughout the state as well as on federal issues in Washington, D.C. Ranching is a round-the-clock job, and the CCA staff works hard to have California cattlemen and women’s backs while they are busy running their family ranching operations.

CCA’s staff is not only educated and poised to go to bat for ranchers each day, but passionate about preserving the western way of life for years to come. To reach any of the staff below, you may contact them by e-mail, or call (916) 444-0845 to reach them at the office in Sacramento.
