Nevada County Fairgrounds Foundation’s Speaker Series Features Anita Oberbauer

Anita Oberbauer, Professor and Chair of the Department of Animal Science at the University of California, Davis, spent Wednesday evening with local students from Bear River and Nevada Union high schools as a guest speaker of the Nevada County Fairgrounds Foundation’s Speaker Series.  The series, now in its second season, brings business education – through access to business leaders and real-life leadership experiences – to local high school students.

Oberbauer shared stories from her “long and winding road” that led to her career path. Words of advice included to stretch yourself and be daring (but be safe and wear protective armor); always seek balance and goals (don’t be afraid to ask for things, but also be willing to give); and never be afraid to recalculate (a career path isn’t always straight, so recalculate as necessary).  She also shared a quote from Louis Pasteur – “Chance favors the prepared mind; and opportunity favors the bold” – and encouraged students to be bold in their choices.

Oberbauer joined the UC Davis faculty in 1989, and was appointed as the Chair of the Department of Animal Science in 2009.  She has a Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology from the University of California, Davis, and her Ph.D. in Animal Physiology at Cornell University. She also completed post-doctoral fellowships in Perinatal Biology at Loma Linda University and Biological Chemistry at University of California, Los Angeles. She was honored in 2002 with a prestigious UC Davis Distinguished Teaching Award, as well as the American Society of Animal Science Corbin Award in Companion Animal Biology (2004), the Distinguished Teacher Award for the Western Section of the American Society of Animal Science (2006), and the Outstanding Mentor Award from the UC Davis Consortium for Women & Research (2011).  

The second season of the Speaker Series features six speakers, one each month, and will run through April.  Upcoming speakers include Caroline Beteta, CEO of Visit California; and Julie Baker, Executive Director of Center for the Arts.

Nevada County Fairgrounds Foundation’s Speaker Series Features Stephanie Ortiz

“When finding a career path, be open to having a meandering path, but don’t blindly wander,” said Stephanie Ortiz, Executive Dean of the Nevada County’s Sierra College Campus, to a group of local high school students on Wednesday night. “Finding a career path is not always a straight line; it’s more of a meandering path with mistakes and learning opportunities along the way, and a path that allows you to look back with perspective.”

Ortiz addressed 20 students from Bear River and Nevada Union high schools as the guest speaker in the second season of the Nevada County Fairgrounds Foundation’s Speaker Series. The series brings business education – through access to business leaders and real-life leadership experiences and advice – to local high school students.

Ortiz has been in education for more than 30 years at the community college and university levels.  She has served as the Executive Dean of Sierra College’s Nevada County Campus since 2009. Prior to that, she was the Dean of the Business and Technology Instructional Division.  She’s also taught in business at Sierra College, Mt. San Antonio Community College and California State University, Fresno.  Before beginning her career in education, she worked in human resources management for The Fresno Bee newspaper and General Dynamics, Pomona Division.

Ortiz discussed the opportunities available at Sierra College, the benefits of attending a community college, and the importance of exploring careers.  She also shared the “soft” skills – adaptability, analysis and solution mindset, collaboration, communication, digital fluency, entrepreneurial thinking, empathy, resilience, self-awareness, and social diversity awareness – necessary for today’s work force.   

The second season of the Speaker Series features six speakers, one each month, and will run through April.  Upcoming speakers include Anita Oberbauer, Professor and Chair of the Department of Animal Science, University of California Davis; and Caroline Beteta, CEO of Visit California.
