Jeff Humpton has always been fond of the outdoors. His love of recreation is evident from his surfing days in Orange County, Calif., to his current job as parks superintendent for Los Alamos County.
Before moving to Los Alamos, Humpton owned his own landscaping business for 12 years.
But after realizing how stressful it was to run your own business, Humpton opted to work for the Orange County school district. “I wasn’t going home stressed all the time and I liked knowing there was a steady paycheck,” he said.
