About the Employer
Rincon Valley is a premier district with 42,000 residents in beautiful Sonoma County. The district makes up one-quarter of Santa Rosa on the east side of the city and includes both small city and rural areas. The surrounding countryside includes vineyard-lined hillsides, the Russian River watershed, and spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean. This warm and friendly area – a blend of art and culture, food, wine, and recreation – is the perfect location for families. Located 55 miles north of San Francisco, 15 miles west of Napa County, and 30 miles east of the Pacific Ocean, the area is close to many wineries, golf courses, world class performing arts venues, and spas. Additional outdoor activities include fishing and water sports on the Russian River and Lake Sonoma, and access to redwood forests. The area also has wonderful state and local parks with miles of jogging and biking trails. Rincon Valley is about twenty minutes away from Sonoma State University, and close to Santa Rosa Junior College, one of the top ten community colleges in the country.
