Ms. Handelman is a native Californian, having lived and worked in the Bay Area until retiring with her husband, Marty Gerbasi, to Sonora in 1996. Although she lived in “the big city” she always had a passion for the great outdoors. The move to Tuolumne County has allowed her and her husband the opportunity to experience all that our rural, agriculturally diverse area has to offer on a daily basis, such as visiting local farms, ranches and vineyards. She pursues her interest in gardening and participates in a variety of outdoor recreational activities. As Secretary for the FOTC Board of Directors she looks forward to contributing to the organization and to the support of agriculture in Tuolumne County.
