Chris Okon has been a volunteer with Golden Gate Audubon since 2005 and currently serves on the Board of Directors. A Chicago native, she moved to the Bay Area in 1990, worked at Kaiser Permanente in their medical technology group until 2018, and now enjoys writing, participating in two book clubs, gardening, and getting out and about in nature. She is always thrilled when a special bird like a Northern Flicker or Spotted Towhee visits her garden but loves the Juncos, Golden Crowned Sparrows, Pygmy Nuthatches, California Towhees and other regulars just the same.
