After the Camp Fire, Benita became involved in the Adopt a Family efforts, helping individual families with basic needs, and donating printing for businesses trying to get back on their feet. She learned about the Tiny Home project, volunteered a few days at the build site, and was hooked! She has assisted Lipp Studios with behind-the-scenes work for their documentary about Tiny Homes for Camp Fire Survivors, and helped with this web site.
Benita is a self-employed graphic designer. She and her husband have a sawmill they use to mill lumber for the tiny homes from trees that would otherwise be disposed of. Benita is also involved with various nonprofit organizations in Amador County, California, where she lives. She finds it very fulfilling to give directly to those in need.
