Education Field Specialist
Mineaux Gray (she/her/hers) joined LandPaths in May of 2019 after completing her degree in Environmental Studies at Sonoma State University that same month. Born in San Francisco and raised just south in San Bruno, Mineaux grew up in an urban space but never failed to sneak away to her few hidden oases tucked in the corners of town with a song on her lips and her guitar in tow. As she launches her career in environmental education, Mineaux has high energy and a mind open to learning. She approaches her work with a sense of responsibility and a love for the habitats and ecosystems that support and create the beautiful intersectionality of life on our planet.
Mineaux previously worked in geriatric care where she had the privilege of tending to the needs of elders in our community, a population often underappreciated and underserved. Before arriving at LandPaths she was an outdoor educator with the County of Sonoma Regional Parks where she discovered her passion for working with youth in nature.
Mineaux believes firmly that both elderly and youth populations, regardless of differences, backgrounds, or experiences, are made up of truly unique individuals that require compassion, attention, fun, companionship, and mutual understanding.
Upon moving north to attend college at Sonoma State, Mineaux fell in love with an environment surrounded by much more green space. It was this that prompted her to take up hiking as a hobby and leading to hours perched in trees, on rocks, or elsewhere, writing poetry and music.
