Sierra Pederson, Manager

Sierra Pederson grew up in Southern California and earned her B.S. in zoology from Colorado State University. For the past five years she has worked in various facets of natural resource management with a focus in wildlife rehabilitation and endangered species management. Most recently, she was a condor biologist with The Peregrine Fund working to monitor, release, and rehabilitate California Condors based out of Marble Canyon, AZ.

In her free time, she enjoys rock climbing, backpacking, and hiking with her dog Charlie. She is so excited to start this new journey with Snowdon Wildlife Sanctuary and explore the wilderness surrounding McCall, ID.

Jeff Rohlman, Board Treasurer & Black Bear Rehabilitation Program Advisor

Jeff has spent his entire career in wildlife management. He grew up in the midwest and developed an early interest in wildlife biology, which took him to the western U.S. where he has remained. He has done extensive research on North American black bears, beginning in 1977 as a research technician and continuing throughout his 36 year career with Idaho Department of Fish & Game as a Regional Wildlife Biologist and Manager. Jeff has always loved his life in the Rocky Mountains and has been involved in countless wildlife projects, including co-authoring a book on Idaho’s black bears. In retirement, Jeff enjoys working with Snowdon’s abundant wildlife rehabilitation challenges. He also enjoys hiking, golfing, beer brewing, construction projects, and living the ranch life at his home in New Meadows.

Debbie Sironen, Board Secretary

Debbie was born in Portland Oregon, and lived most of her life in Oregon. She was raised out in the country and  always had a variety of pets: cats, dogs, goats, and the occasional guinea pig or hamster. Debbie worked at the phone company her whole career and finally retired after 32 years. Some of her interests include running, hiking, travel, reading, photography and camping.

Debbie has volunteered for the Portland Humane Society, the Bend Spay and Neuter Project, and numerous spay and neuter campaigns. She has also volunteered at a wildlife rescue and rehab in Bend, Oregon.

After she moved to Idaho in 2014 she found Snowdon Wildlife Sanctuary. Debbie feels it has been rewarding to help the animals and serve on the Board of Directors. Debbie knows that what Snowdon does makes a big difference for our community and the wildlife that we live around.
