Growing up in the high desert of Los Angeles County, Corless took many ski trips to Mammoth Lakes as a kid. She returned to the Eastern Sierra after earning a Master of Arts degree at UC Berkeley, and has called the mountains home for over twenty years. She is a passionate advocate for the Sierra Nevada region, and good stewardship of public lands is a priority for her work in Mono County and as RCRC Chair.
Corless’ background in communications, earned during 15 years as a nonprofit executive director, writer, publisher, teacher, and entrepreneur, has helped her advocate for her county’s and constituents’ needs as a supervisor. As RCRC Chair in 2021, she is proud to serve as a voice for California’s rural counties.
