About Us

Anna Katharina Rudolph is a PhD candidate in European Medieval History at UCSB. She is writing an interpretive history of Mission La Purisima in Lompoc, and hopes to use the information she gathers to design new tours that focus on themes of migrations and immigrations to enhance the relevancy of the State Park.

Nicky Rehnberg studies environmental history as a History PhD student at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She researches, writes, and gives tours to local fourth graders in NPS’s Every Kid Outdoors Program and community tours at Carpinteria State Beach. 

Mariel Aquino studies the history of the American West at UCSB. As Project Manager, she coordinates between the university and community partners to develop and put on events and programs that advance the goals of the project.
