General Manager- Shawn Rohrbacker

Executive Administrator- Victoria Anton

Business Manager- Deborah Peltzer

Recreation Supervisor- Brian Wilson

I joined FRRPD as the Recreation Supervisor in the Fall of 2018.  In this position, my primary responsibility is to develop, plan, implement, and supervise Recreation programming for the District. Prior to joining FRRPD, I worked for the Durham Recreation and Park District for 5 years, as the Recreation Supervisor, and most recently as the District Manager.  I am a Chico State graduate, with a degree in Kinesiology: Movement Studies/Coaching Administration, and a Minor in Physical Education/Teacher Education, where classes in Outdoor Education led to my appreciation of the outdoors.  Originally from Santa Cruz, CA, where I graduated from Harbor High School, I have been in the Chico area since 1991, and currently live in the town of Paradise with my wife and two children. I am committed to the development and growth of recreation programming within the District and will work hard to provide the appropriate support and services needed to provide quality recreation experiences for the community. Please feel free to reach out and share your thoughts, ideas, comments, questions and concerns regarding the Recreation Department at FRRPD.

 Recreation Coordinator- Gymnastics Michelle Huffman

Park Supervisor- Scott Thompson
My mother’s side of the family moved to Oroville in the late 1950’s, and I still have family in town that I visit often. My mother moved to Chico in the 1980’s, where I was born and raised. I have always appreciated Oroville’s parks, and more recently when I had my own children we would frequent Riverbend Park to enjoy the natural beauty of the river and the other aspects of the park. My wife and I have three girls, and they can spend hours in the parks if we let them. I have been in the construction field as a career since I graduated high school, my father is a general contractor in Chico and I worked with him for years. I branched out into disaster restoration and insurance claim work in 2009, and learned a lot about that side of the industry. I have been with FRRPD since early 2018 and I look forward to making our current parks great, and expanding where we can to have even better facilities.

Director of Children’s Services- Estela Valencia

I moved to Oroville in 2005 from the Central Valley. I graduated from Chico State in 2010. I have been working in the child development field for over 9 years and I have also worked as a teacher’s aide. I am very passionate at what I do! Working with young children is such a joy and a rewarding career. Every day is different and that’s why I love it! I enjoy going on road trips with my family, walking, shopping and love listening to music. I have two wonderful boys and baby girl. We have a busy house.

Here is one my favorite quotes:
“Those who educate children well are more to be honored than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well”  – Aristotle
