Gwen Schiada


I am currently serving my third term on the North Beach Town Council and act as Council Liaison to the Environmental Committee. Prior to being elected to the Council, I served on the North Beach Planning Commission. In these positions, I have played a strong role in implementing the vision for the town.

I hold a doctorate in Clinical Psychology and have a passion for using media to create positive change. I serve as President and Co-Founder of Career Puppy, Inc., which is a multi-media company focused on assisting youth and career transitioning individuals "Find their Path and Make their Mark". I have also worked at the local, state and federal levels to help create safe and healthy communities through school and community education partnerships.

I am originally from the small beach community of Santa Barbara, California and when I moved to North Beach with my husband, Aric, in 2000 I was instantly at home. The peaceful way of life is reminiscent of the tranquility and beauty of what I've come to appreciate about a small community of residents who love where they live. I am passionate about maintaining the rare beauty and strong sense of community we cherish here in North Beach.
