  • Sharon Davis, CEO

    Sharon came to the Mendocino Coast 20 years ago.  She wanted to find the right environment in which to raise her two daughters.  “It was important to me to find a small town that had a strong sense of community,” says Sharon. “The first time I visited the Mendocino Coast, I knew I had found that place.”

    While raising her children she ran a home business, which enabled her to be available for all of their activities.  For over ten years Sharon coached for the Fort Bragg Girls Softball Association and also sat on the Board during that time. She is also the Coordinator of the Fort Bragg Otsuchi Cultural Exchange Association, where she organizes and runs the student exchange with Fort Bragg's Sister City of Otsuchi, Japan.

    When her children were older, she became the Executive Director of the Jere Melo Foundation, a local non-profit. Most recently, she was the General Manager of the North Cliff Hotel.  She has also worked as a Production Assistant on many locally filmed movies and television shows. Prior to moving to the Mendocino Coast, Sharon was a District Sales Manager and Corporate Trainer for a retail chain in Southern California for many years.

    According to Sharon, “This community has been the most wonderful and supportive place to raise my daughters and now that they are grown, I feel that leading the Chamber is the perfect way for me to give back by supporting our local businesses and community as a whole.

    Casey was born in Fullerton, CA and moved to Fort Bragg with her family in 1998. She began at the Chamber of Commerce in April, 2016 to work in the visitor center. When Rosalie Scott retired, she took on the role of Office Manager. As well as that, she manages the social media platforms for the Chamber, Visit Fort Bragg, CA, Thanksgiving Coffee Co, and other organizations. Casey left town after graduating high school to live in Redding, CA for 2 years but then realized she couldn’t be away from the breathtaking beauty of her hometown so she decided to make her way back over here for a little while.

  • David Kosonen, Front Desk Representative

    David has lived nearly his entire life on the Mendocino Coast. After graduating from Fort Bragg High School, he traveled to other parts of the country for work as a Millwright; but he never found a community that felt so much like home. Through the years he has been deeply involved in the theatre community in the area be it as an actor, technical director, or even as president of a local theatre company. His love of the area, the scenic views, the beautiful redwood forests, make him an excellent addition to the Chamber of Commerce. Have a question about what to do, where to go, or what to see? That’s what he is here for.
