Patricia VasquezPatricia Vasquez
Office Specialist III

Patricia has worked for the County of Santa Clara for over two decades in a variety of roles including at Valley Medical Center, Department of Corrections, and the Parks Department. She has enjoyed working with volunteers over the years and especially loves working with them at the many events they help us manage as well as at the annual volunteer recognition events we host annually. It is a true reward for her seeing the many volunteer accomplishments and seeing the breadth of what they bring to Parks. She provides support to the volunteer program by signing volunteers up for events and sending out important information.

Extra Help

Cecilia has been a part of the volunteer program since 2012 as extra help after retiring from the Santa Clara County Controller’s office.  She enjoys meeting lots of super volunteers who work tirelessly in our Parks and personally enjoy visiting as many County parks as possible herself.  She also values the experience she gets working with park staff and learning different roles each have in making sure County Park’s operate in a most welcoming environment to the public.

Formerly she has worked with many different agencies as an interpreter, an environmental educator, naturalist, outreach and education specialist, water quality tester, and wildlife caregiver.

Julie Lee
Program Manager

Julie’s experience goes back 27 years to her first summer season at Motorcycle Park as a Park Services Attendant. That summer she was inspired by what County Parks had to offer and was fortunate to build a parks career. She is extraordinarily honored to be representing the Santa Clara County Parks Department as the program manager for the Volunteer program.  She appreciates those that take the time to participate in stewardship and sharing their appreciation of our parklands.  She knows that it truly takes a village to keep our trails, visitor centers, facilities and programs running smoothly, safely and in a manner that keeps people coming back for more.
