Nicole Van Vacas GagnonDirector Penn Valley Area Chamber of CommerceBoard of Directors
Nicole (VVG as some call her), thinks Penn Valley embraces all the vibrant qualities of a fantastic small town in America, a great sense of community, neighborliness, natural beauty, and active, educational, and cultural pursuits in easy reach. She and her husband moved here in 2006, and have three children, a horse and goat. At our fantastic local schools, Williams Ranch, Pleasant Valley, and Ready Springs, Nicole has volunteered in classrooms, special events, fundraisers, and been a member of the local school board. She enjoys finding Penn Valley partnerships in service to our school and community, and drawing on her background in professional project management for a global consulting company.
