My brother lives there and my husband and I try to visit as often as we can.  Growing up in such a beautiful, agricultural area and taking hikes with my dad up oat hill mine road gave me a profound appreciation for the environment. That background drew me to major in environmental policy during undergrad and then go into the field of environmental law.”  -San Francisco based EPA Attorney Rebekah Wiley who, with her son Wiley, is on her way to the Calistoga Saturday Market.
