Tourist season over?

Sarah Weber, left, and Hannah Weber from Wasilla, Alaska, look over the displays at Oregon Welcome Center at Crissey Field State Park.

Barbara Ciaramella loves living on America’s Wild Rivers Coast and is enthusiastic about getting people to come and see the area.

But first, she must find ways to get people to stop by the Crissey Field State Park Oregon Welcome Center, where she is the new manager.

Ciaramella moved to Brookings two years ago from Reno, Nevada, after making the area a regular vacation destination for eight years.

She grew up in the San Francisco Bay area and, between there and Reno, has worked in the tourism business for 25 years, either as a tour wholesaler or owning a travel agency.

After she moved to Brookings, she quickly became active in the community, volunteering on the Brookings Tourism Board and being a member of the Cape Ferrelo Fire Department board of directors.
