Bev Dransfeldt is a first-generation immigrant having grown up in a small central valley town. Camarillo became her second home in college and fell in love with it so much she made it her permanent home over 4 years ago. Bev is a mother to Pazita and their 3 rescue dogs, with lots of support from her husband, Cory.
A graduate in Political Science from the University of California, Berkeley —the first of her family to graduate from a four year university – Bev has been a music industry manager and later moved into the public sector, mixing her passion for the arts and public service by working in the Cultural Affairs Department for the City of Thousand Oaks and recently as a Recreation Specialist for Pleasant Valley Recreation & Park District.
Raised on a farm in a small town and working in the fields with her immigrant mother, Bev is keenly aware of her blessings and seeks to “pay it forward” by advocating for those without a voice and remaining politically active within the community.
