SnakeMy name is Sarah, and I was born in Southern California. After a few years of living in Texas and Oklahoma, I settled here on the Central Coast with my family at the ripe old age of 10. I attended elementary school, junior high, and high school here in SLO before moving down to Orcutt for about 15 years and then returning to SLO County in 2014. I have one older brother who lives here locally along with my parents and grandparents. I love animals and have always been involved in animal rescue in some way. In 2016 a friend and I took the red eye to Georgia on a Friday night to pick up a rescue dog, and then we drove straight back to the Central Coast in 35 hours only stopping to switch drivers and grab food. I even made it to work Monday morning! I was also involved with a couple of local roller derby leagues for a few years as a player, a coach, and as an announcer (many friends still know me as Cinder). While I do miss playing, a few injuries and the time commitment required to be competitive sent me in new directions. I love the outdoors and really enjoy hiking and running on our awesome local trails. I ran the San Luis Half Marathon in 2015 and hope to do more. A full marathon is definitely on my bucket list. I love trying new things; I do my best to live life to the fullest, and am always looking for some type of adventure. I was lucky enough to work in the wine industry for a few years and have learned to love and appreciate the amazing wine that is produced here on the Central Coast, but I started my journey with Wallace Group in June of 2015 as the receptionist and quickly moved into the Construction Management Department where my heart belongs. I’ve since learned that SWPPPs (Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan) can be exciting and not just a cure for insomnia. I’m very happy here and am looking forward to what’s next! Describe what you do at WG I primarily provide admin support and comic relief for the Construction Management Dept. I also do SWPPP inspections, and during the rains you will most likely find me out in the field playing in the mud and water. What are some of your favorite activities with WG? I love the charitable side of Wallace Group and the healthy, active culture. If we are sponsoring a run, I’m usually participating in it. I am also on the Fun Committee, and I must say, we are a super fun group! What are you involved in outside WG? I have recently become involved with RISE (a non-profit that provides services to survivors of sexual and intimate partner violence and their loved ones) and am co-chairing a committee for the annual Wine Women and Shoes Gala. I’m also in the process of joining our local Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Unit. This will allow me to fulfill my need to serve the community and get outside as well. Favorite pastime I love to read! And if I can relax in a lounge chair or hammock in the woods with a good book, I’m in heaven! Favorite movie Just might be Pretty Woman. Favorite food I love all kinds of food, but if I had to choose one thing for my very last meal it would have to be mashed potatoes and corn; I do so love carbs and starches! Describe your dream vacation I have two dream vacations – I would love to stay in one of those huts on the water in Bora Bora, and I would love to spend time in an isolated cabin in the mountains. What’s your favorite childhood memory? It would either be riding my bike in the rain with my brother or playing in the mud pit in our front yard in the rain. What’s your secret ability? I’m really quite good at leg wrestling. Also I sneeze like a cat, which suits me and my obsession with cats. What is the furthest away from SLO have you been? That would probably be Kauai. Hiking

Hi – I’m Sybil Regan. Most people who meet or know me – their first comment is that “I am always smiling”. Why am I always smiling? Life is GREAT!! I love my growing family, my home, and my job! I have been working in Wallace Group’s Marketing Department since 2011. I was born in Marin County and spent 7 years overseas during my high school and college prep years (3 in Saudi Arabia, 1 in Switzerland and 3 in England. I am still in contact with many of my roommates and good friends from my years there). I will always be thankful to my Mom and Dad for their bravery in moving to a foreign country and giving us kids (there are five of us!) the most awesome experiences of our lives . . . I still have the itch to travel. I have been married 37 years to my husband Patrick, a former Marine Drill Instructor, and retired from Sanrio (Hello Kitty) after 30 years as Distribution Manager. He now works part time at Woods Humane Society - you’d be surprised at how much hard physical work it is, but he also gets to play a lot – and he brought home our precious doggie Joey. We have two amazing children of whom we are very proud of all their accomplishments . . . April, who is married to Brian and lives in San Jose, and Kyle, married to Thrudy, and lives in Burlingame. Kyle and Thrudy have blessed us with 1 grandson, Levi, and another grandson on the way in May. After 31 years in the Bay Area “corporate” world, it was time to leave the rat race and move to “Paradise” for a “slo”er pace! It has been a dream come true to make the move to SLO. Living here on the Central Coast has given us some amazing opportunities to enjoy life to its fullest. We hike, bike, camp, take walks, play with Joey on the beach, enjoy awesome music, wine tasting, I’m learning how to play golf, and we’ve even seen whales while eating lunch . . . all within 30 minutes of our home! Our home has become a revolving B&B with many friends and family wanting to escape their busy lives for a weekend or weeks at a time down here. We love it! Describe what you do at WG I am a Marketing Coordinator and the highlight of my day are proposals – ranging from 3 pages to 100+ pages – making them “pretty” fulfills my desire to be creative . . . and when the company wins the jobs, it makes me giddy! What are some of your favorite activities with WG? I am a member of the Fun Committee, and we always come up with some really fun and eclectic ideas for activities to get our team together outside of work. Favorite pastime I love to cook, read, ride bikes, travel, watch movies, play games, listen to music, and hang out with my honeys (Patrick and Joey). Favorite movie Mama Mia – ALWAYS makes me smile and want to get up and dance. Favorite food When I’m off my diet?! Starbucks Hot Chocolate, Pizza, ice cream, tacos, any kind of cookies . . . When I’m on my diet – toast with nut butter and clementines . . . Describe your dream vacation. Anywhere tropical and cruises . . . Since living overseas we have been back to Europe twice, visited Greece, Belize, Jamaica, Hawaii, and Mexico. This year we will be going to Costa Rica, and our goal is to get to Australia and New Zealand within the next 5 years. What’s your favorite childhood memory? Sledding with my family in Tahoe – and I DO NOT like the snow but it was soooooo much fun! What’s your secret ability? I don’t have one that I know of . . . must still be a secret. What is the furthest away from SLO have you been? Either Saudi Arabia or Greece Margarita TimeLevi n Gammi

Wallace group contributed a $500 Scholarship to the Geomatics Engineering Program at California State University, Fresno. The Geomatics program is full of energetic and eager future surveyors. The small program offers a variety of Surveying, GIS, Photogrammetry, GPS and Geodesy classes. The majority of these classes are offered once every school year with a schedule. This constricted and rigorous schedule makes it very difficult for students with financial need to work and earn an income. Every year, the Geomatics Engineering students work unstoppably to organize an Annual Geomatics Engineering conference to raise awareness of the profession and also to fundraise for the program. The 56th Annual Geomatics Engineering Conference was held January 27th and 28th in Fresno. During this conference the students get awarded with scholarships to help their financial struggles. This year, like other previous ones, Wallace Group decided to contribute. The lucky winner of the Wallace Group Scholarship was Jakob Lopez. Jakob is a junior in the program and his contribution to the Geomatics Conference was outstanding. He even took a trip from Fresno to visit WG and attend a local CLSA Chapter meeting. Jakob was extremely happy and thankful for this scholarship. He will be sending a Thank You letter soon.

Each year Wallace Group travels to Sacramento to participate in the largest gathering of wine industry folks on the West Coast.  The Unified Wine and Grape Symposium sees thousands of growers, wineries, cooperage companies, architects, label makers and cork consumers perusing the convention center. Our team consisting of Rob Miller, Shannon Jessica, and Bryan Childress have been enjoying seeing old friends and new clients this week. WG’s Water Resources Department already works closely with many wineries providing solutions on a variety of matters, but this event provides a great opportunity for WG to meet, reconnect, and chat with people in the wine industry (and maybe also enjoy a little wine).
