Kim Anaclerio, Operations Manager

Kim Anaclerio, Operations Manager

Kim grew up visiting Mammoth with her family and in 2014 finally moved to the East Sierra full time. Her work history has guided her through a variety of experiences in outdoor recreation related jobs – teaching, guiding, logistics, field research, grant writing, program development and, once upon a time, working with MLTPA’s Kelly Karl at the Welcome Center (see below!). Kim’s professional studies include a Bachelor of Science in Recreation, Hospitality & Parks Management from California State University, Chico along with a Master Degree in Sustainable Business Planning for Eco/Adventure Tourism. When she’s not busy keeping MLTPA and the Mammoth Lakes Trail System running smoothly Kim can be found enjoying all kinds of outdoor adventures, especially skiing, snowboarding, backpacking and mountain biking.

Kelly Karl, Natural Resources Manager

Kelly Karl, Natural Resources Manager

Kelly moved to Mammoth during the “snowpocalypse” (winter of 2010/2011) to learn how to snowboard between seasonal jobs as an Interpretive Park Ranger. There must have been something special in the snow that year because she quickly fell in love with the mountains and “forgot” to leave town that spring. Through her travels, Kelly earned two B.A.’s from the University of California Santa Cruz in Modern Literature and Environmental Studies, worked as an Interpretive Park Ranger at five different National Parks and Monuments, and worked for a stint at the Mammoth Lakes Welcome Center where she became an expert at reading maps upside down. Most recently (2018), Kelly earned an M.S. in Park & Resource Management from Slippery Rock University. Kelly is excited to use her cumulative knowledge focused on sustainable recreation as a Natural Resources Manager for MLTPA, overseeing region-wide trail system signage projects and other efforts which will have profound implications for the town and region. In her free time she enjoys trail running (at competition level), hiking, backpacking, amateur carpentry, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, and adventuring with her dog Hayduke.

Andrew Mulford, GIS Manager

Andrew Mulford, GIS Manager

Andrew grew up in the countryside of Virginia where he spent his childhood rambling around in a hundred acre forest and kayaking about on the Western Branch Reservoir. With his wonderful mother Jan as a teacher and guide he learned to love the outdoors. Andrew studied Geography at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and used his newfound skills to navigate his way to the opposite side of the continent. He is happy as a clam here on the east side and really enjoys contributing to our recreational landscape through his employment with MLTPA. Andrew’s official title is GIS manager, but he sneaks out of the office on occasion to groom the Nordic trails at Shady Rest (snow permitting) and design and build multi-use singletrack trails.

Trevor Van Winkle, Photo & Digital Asset Manager

Trevor Van Winkle, Photo & Digital Asset Manager

Trevor moved to Mammoth after graduating from Biola University with a degree in Film Production & Editing. Falling in love with the area while visiting family and exploring the backcountry, he chose to remain in town rather than return to Los Angeles – a decision he's yet to regret. First coming into contact with MLTPA staff through the Mammoth Lakes Film Festival, he has since worked as a field photographer, photo librarian, and digital assets manager. He also works as a freelance photographer/videographer, post-production media specialist, and as a stage manager and lighting technician for Mammoth Lakes Repertory Theatre. In his free time, he can often be found running the MLTS (particularly the Town Loop), and has just self-published his first novel, a high-fantasy epic entitled "The Gräzland Tales", largely inspired by the grandeur and beauty of the Eastern Sierra.
