Cherie Maria Barnett is a lifelong resident of Santa Rosa. She lives in the Murdock Terrace which is in walking distance to some of the best ravioli and croissants in the world—that’s living in paradise.
Cherie is a graduate of both Santa Rosa High School and Santa Rosa Junior College. She was able to walk or bike to school and didn’t need to own a car until she transferred to CSU Sacramento to finish her bachelor’s degree in Political Science. Cherie is a fellow of the Leadership Institute for the Ecology and the Economy Class of 2012.
Cherie was a campaign manager and fundraiser for numerous grassroots candidates throughout Sonoma County. In 2016 Cherie married her partner of seven years Joshua Barnett and decided family life and the need for a work/family life balance needed to take priority.
She is a firm believer in the principles of sustainability and how those principles add quality to your life while reducing your carbon footprint. As our new Outreach and Events Coordinator for the Sonoma County Bike Coalition her duties include overseeing the coalition’s membership program, recruiting and supporting volunteers for events, and coordinating the Bike to Work Month activities.
When Cherie and her family are not out on the bike paths you can find her downtown in the square or having coffee at Brew or you’ll see her at the upcoming Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition events happening throughout Sonoma County this year.
