Santa Barbara, CA, USA


My children, Angela Macias Weidmann of Santa Barbara, and Steve Macias of Seattle, both attended UC Santa Barbara. With both of them attending UCSB, we found ourselves spending more and more time here. When our first grandchild was born, we moved to Santa Barbara full time.

Since joining GCC, I have worked on organizing film screenings, making connections with local businesses, partnered with Vandenberg Air Force Base on a presentation, and coordinated a major donor fund raising event. I currently serve on the Development Committee.

"I work to raise awareness of the intrinsic value and uniqueness of this amazing coast. It is worth protecting and it is worth fighting for. That might mean attending hearings, writing an email, joining a local grassroots organization (Gaviota Coast Conservancy), or writing a check. I am an Armchair Activist. Join me!"
