Our Staff


Jeremiah Paulsen,
Community Development Coordinator

After obtaining his Bachelor’s Degree in Theatre Arts and receiving the Air Force Achievement Medal for Meritorious Service during his seven year enlistment in the Washington Air Force National Guard, Jeremiah Paulsen found his way to the RARE program after planning messy art activities for children, tinkering in the sale of second hand goods, crafting hot beverages to company code and helping students learn and laugh through their daily reading lessons.

Tourist Marketing & Tour Boat Coordinator

With nine years as a corporate travel consultant from the San Francisco Bay Area and twelve years as a business owner by Yosemite National Park, Bunny is a perfect fit for our Tourist Marketing and Tour Boat Coordinator position.
