Who is our leadership?

Welcome to the CCA community! I'm Miranda Baldosky, the proud Board President of CCA, and I'd like to share a bit about my journey and commitment to Valle.

Having spent my entire life under Valle's expansive skies and amidst its wide-open ranges, this land holds a special place in my heart. After a brief venture to Flagstaff, where I earned my undergraduate degree in Parks and Recreation Management at NAU, my path led me to explore different corners of the world. Yet, no matter where I went, Valle called me back home.

Returning with a newfound passion for community service, I set my sights on creating systems of support for sustainable off-grid, rural living. Valle, with its unique charm and close-knit community, became the perfect canvas for these aspirations. It was this dedication that led me to pursue and obtain my real estate license, allowing me to contribute to the growth and well-being of the Valle community in a meaningful way.

As the founder of CCA, I am committed to fostering a community that thrives sustainably and embraces the principles of off-grid living. Through our collaborative efforts, we can create lasting systems of support and make Valle an even better place to call home.

I am honored to serve as your Board President and look forward to working together to build a brighter future for Valle.

It is my pleasure to introduce myself as Ida Rose Florez, your Board Secretary at CCA. Together with my husband, Rick, I am passionately creating a sustainable living homestead and demonstration site just 15 miles south of Valle in the Red Lake area.

My journey is enriched with diverse experiences, particularly in the nonprofit sector. I've served as a board officer for various local, state, and national organizations, bringing a wealth of knowledge and a deep commitment to community service. Previously, I had the honor of leading San Diego's Elementary Institute of Science as the executive director, where my dedication to educational advancements took center stage.

My educational background includes a Ph.D. in educational psychology from the University of Arizona, a foundation that has fueled my passion for lifelong learning and sustainable living. In 2021, I made a significant shift, transitioning my educational consulting practice to focus exclusively on regenerative living and learning. This transition aligns with my forthcoming book, The End of Education as We Know It: Regenerative Learning for Complex Times, which will be published by New Society Publishers.

I am thrilled to bring my expertise and enthusiasm to the role of Board Secretary at CCA. Together, let's continue building a community that embraces sustainability, education, and regenerative living.

I am delighted to introduce myself as Ben Holladay, your Board Treasurer at CCA. My journey to Valle began three years ago, following my honorable discharge from the military. Intrigued by the potential for personal growth and well-being, I initially arrived with aspirations to elevate awareness through my health and wellness business, On Your Mark Worldwide.

However, upon immersing myself in the Valle community, I recognized the pressing local needs that could be addressed through a collective effort. This realization led me to shift my focus and collaborate with Miranda in establishing CCA, a venture dedicated to serving the community and promoting sustainable living.

In addition to my community service, I am currently in the final stages of completing my undergraduate degree in psychology, with graduation anticipated this summer. This academic pursuit complements my passion for understanding human behavior and contributes to my commitment to personal and community well-being.

As your Board Treasurer, I am excited to bring my skills and dedication to the financial management of CCA, ensuring that our collective efforts make a lasting impact. Let's work together to foster a community that thrives both individually and collectively.
