• Erna Friedeberg, MPA

    Executive Director

    Length of Employment at NVCSS: 2001-Present

    NVCSS is a great place to work because of the amazing and diverse services and caring staff that are providing those service to children and families throughout the North State.

    I am a local, having grown up in Northern California and have lived here my entire life. I love the North State with its beauty in both nature and the human spirit. I am blessed with a loving family and 2 amazing sons. I was called to service through strong family values and a commitment to improving the lives of others who are facing challenges. Mom and dad raised me to be a Niner, Giants and Warrior fan, which is how I spend much of my off time!

  • Amy Diamantine

    Regional Director, Shasta/Siskiyou/Trinity Counties

    Length of Employment at NVCSS: 2015-Present

    I have a passion for helping and supporting our community members. By building a strong, connected community I believe we can create a foundation of growth, love and compassion with and for one another. Service to others is the key to building this foundation and NVCSS exemplifies this philosophy.

    I have lived in Shasta County for 15 years with my husband and 2 daughters. I hold a license in Marriage and Family Therapy and began my career in Counseling Psychology in 2010. I am originally from the Bay Area, and come from a large family where roots run deep in the San Francisco and Oakland areas. However, I have grown to feel Shasta County is truly my home. I spend my time enjoying the summers of Redding at the lake or by the pool. I fancy myself a gardener despite the fact if my plants and flowers could speak they may voice a different opinion. As I watch my daughters become young women and begin to leave the nest I am reminded of the value of connection, family, and community. I have loved raising my girls in Redding and I feel truly bonded to this community.
