Board of Directors

Westi Haughey
A native of California, Westi relocated to Southern Oregon in 2011. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Radio-TV-Film from San Jose State University and has spent her career in marketing both for and non-profits. Currently, she operates her own marketing consulting business, Westi Haughey Consulting LLC, that focuses on helping local and small businesses build their brands. Westi started volunteering at Sanctuary One in 2012 to expand her knowledge of care farming and get involved in the local community—the experience has enriched her life in spades. She is actively developing her own farm alongside her husband and children and learning the crafts of wine and cheese making.

Becky Owston
As an Oregonian who grew up exploring the woods, digging in the garden and caring for myriad creatures, from goats to garter snakes, Becky feels a profound connection to the mission of Sanctuary One. She holds an art degree from the University of Oregon, was a bicycling coach for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Team in Training, and has worked in marketing for Backroads, an active travel company, since 1991. She is also a Jackson County Master Recycler and a weekly volunteer at Sanctuary One. When not working or volunteering, Becky can often be found hiking local trails with her husband and their “pack” of three dogs.

She has been a member of the City of Talent Planning Commission, the Talent Urban Renewal Agency, and President of the Talent City Council. In addition to her work with Sanctuary One, Lisa enjoys working in the garden she shares with her friends. Her love of animals has always played a large part in her life.

Jill Townsley
Jill, a native of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, has lived in many places on both coasts before landing here in Southern Oregon in November, 2011. Her professional career has also been diverse with earned degrees in veterinary technology, theatre, and a clinical doctorate in physical therapy. She currently works at Rogue Regional Medical Center in the acute care and inpatient rehabilitation departments. She actively participates as a volunteer at the Sanctuary, including as a guide for the public tours of the farm.
