We have two amazing children now grown and moved on to begin their adult lives and three fur children. As our children have grown up in Oroville we stayed involved in the local youth programs, depending on what their interest were at the time.I am proud to manage the Feather River Recreation & Park District since 2015 and love our wonderful community. I enjoy forward thinking to develop the future of Parks and Recreation in our District.

Maintenance Supervisor Kevin Brazda
Executive Administrator Victoria Teague
I was born in Oroville, CA and raised by a family that loves to be active outdoors. My childhood consisted of fishing, hunting, camping, and weekends on our houseboat. After graduating from Oroville High School, I followed my dreams of traveling and took advantage of opportunities away from the small town where grew up. Some of those opportunities included volunteer work, college, and internships. After many memorable adventures, I decided to return to Butte County to finish my degree and pursue a career. Upon moving back to Oroville, I met my best friend and husband and we purchased our first home. Over the years, I have worked for many locally owned businesses and continue to volunteer for non-profit organizations. I take pride in serving our community and I am so grateful to be a part of the FRRPD team.
