On her decision, she said: “I was raised in Nevada City and my family has been here since the 1880s. I attended Nevada City Elementary and Nevada Union High School. After college and establishing a career, I returned to Nevada City about 7 years ago because Nevada City is where we wanted to raise our daughter. These roots have formed my deep commitment to our community. I want to make sure that Nevada City is the same wonderful place when our daughter is grown.”
Dr. Ray is married and has one daughter who attends Deer Creek School. She has a doctorate in Psychology and practices locally and in Sacramento.
Dr. Ray has been active in neighborhood issues including Friends of Nevada City Elementary.

People are attracted to Nevada City because it has a healthy balance of neighborhoods, history, culture and art, non-profit organizations, and businesses that make it such a dynamic yet timeless Gold Country town. This is something that other communities envy and that we should protect.”
