Lianne was first recruited by the Piedmont League to be Program Vice President. She joined the League eight years ago, shortly after being nominated. She has been on her local League’s board almost every year since, including a two-year term as President. Lianne is married and has four children. She and her husband, Richard, live in Piedmont.
Her work experience includes having been an assistant editor for a public administration journal, a part-time lecturer for Cal State East Bay’s Department of Public Education, and a lecturer one summer at the Ramkhamhaeng University in Bangkok, Thailand.
She currently works part-time for the Ann Martin Center, a nonprofit serving at-risk children in need of psychotherapy, educational therapy, and diagnostic assessment.
Aside from the League, she has been a volunteer with First Place for Youth, a program for former foster youth. She served on their Board of Directors for six years.
She and her husband are in the midst of establishing an organic olive orchard in Lake County, where she is a member of the Farm Bureau and the local California Women for Agriculture chapter. Lianne is also an avid hiker and tries to accomplish at least one race-walking half marathon a year
