Meet The Builders

 

Deanna Oliveri

Deanna Graduated from SUNY Oneonta in 2014 with a BS in Environmental Science and a minor in Outdoor Education. She has always been passionate about anything that allows her to explore the outdoors. In 2012, she discovered mountain biking, and it was love at first ride. With this, she discovered her passion for trail building, when she was part of a town initiative to create a trail network for multiple user groups. She has been involved in several trail building initiatives, including serving as a board member for the local mountain bike club, CCMBA, as the Trail Planner and Liason. She believes that trail building is just as much of an art as it is a science, and that trails should be as beautiful as they are functional.
