California Pacific Charter School Board Members

Rickey Trombetta, Board President

Rickey Trombetta was raised in Santa Rosa and spent a majority of her formative years in her Italian father’s garden and her mother’s kitchen. She learned how food you grow yourself can become magic when it hits the table. Rickey’s father, a local doctor with many members of the burgeoning wine community as patients, liked to entertain. His sense of hospitality was handed down to Rickey and her husband, Roger Stancliff, as they became absorbed with a home winemaking group at work. 

Rickey seized upon an opportunity to work alongside winemaker Paul Hobbs and become involved in all aspects of the process. Her duties ranged from working in the vineyard and winery, to the less-glamorous marketing and sales tasks that are so important to keeping a winery afloat. After taking additional academic winemaking and marketing courses, she felt ready to chart her own course and founded Trombetta Family Wines, with her first release from the 2010 vintage and currently serves as the Proprietor/CEO.

In addition to her work at the winery, Rickey has an extensive background and passion for education.  She is a graduate at Cal State University Chico and served at Hewlett-Packard in the Human Resources division.  She was instrumental in overseeing college recruitment, student employment programs and community outreach. 

From 1988 - 1994 she served on the PACE (Parent and Childhood Education) Committee at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital and led numerous community events and projects such as Music in the Park, Fundraiser for Forestville Foundation, Forestville Youth Park, Boys Scouts and after school programs. Additionally, Rickey has served on the Forestville Union School Board of Trustees. 

Rickey’s well-roundedness and passion for education, life-long learning, and providing exceptional learning options for our students is a real asset.  Furthermore, her relationships with several people, agencies, and community groups in Sonoma County will be an integral part of our long-term growth and sustainability.  We are excited that Rickey has joined our board which was effective April 30, 2020.
