When she is not working or volunteering, Kathi likes to read, write, and spend time with her family and their spoiled-rotten Border Collie, Baby.
Stacey Richard Dean, Director
Stacey was born in 1948 in Greeley, Colorado and lived on a ranch on the outskirts of town. He started fishing in Wyoming at age six and considers himself a fisherman more than anything else. His mother loved animals and animal husbandry; any stray or injured animal that came by was adopted and cared for. He also had three saddle-horses that he rode a lot. Stacey went to college at Colorado University and medical school at CU in Denver. He completed his residency in Internal Medicine and Chief Residency in Medicine. He then practiced Internal Medicine/Cardiology in Pullman, Washington and Moscow, Idaho - running the ICU's in both. He is married and has two sons.
Stacey retired to Corvallis and has worked at Chintimini Wildlife Center as a volunteer, bird handler, and board member. His whole life has been blessed with interactions with animals and birds, and he considers it an honor to serve on the board.
