Pauline Jimenez: Secretary

Pauline Jimenez discovered backpacking in 1976 when she took the Basic Mountaineering Course (now Wilderness Basics Course), which was offered by the San Diego Chapter of the Sierra Club. She became a Sierra Club member that same year, and a Chapter Outings Leader in 1993. In 2010, Pauline was awarded the Sierra Club’s Silver Cup Award for her long-term leadership of the Hi Sierran Committee (which publishes the chapter’s bi-monthly newsletter), leadership of chapter outings and backpacks, Wilderness Basics Course instruction and leadership, and her long-standing service as the chapter’s Outings Committee secretary. This is the club’s highest chapter award. Pauline retired as an Executive Secretary from the City of San Diego in 2011, after almost 38 years of service. She continues to lead Sierra Club outings and backpacks typically in the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and the Sierra Nevada Mountains, is a new volunteer trail guide for the San Diego Natural History Museum, and is proud to continue her long-standing membership in Toastmasters, International. Her trail avocations include ethnobotany, “naked eye” astronomy, playing her guitar, and singing under the stars.
