Biography

About Richard Veum

Richard lives and works at New Camaldoli Hermitage as a lay staff in charge of the bookstore and some of the business management duties. Richard went to school in Santa Cruz County, where he also grew up. Richard says that if you figure the average doctoral degree takes eight years to complete, he has the equivalent of five PhDs in life experience and work—only with no student loans! Richard would like to improve the experience children have in school, work to help the school be financially responsible, and be of service to his community and others. Richard believes we should never accept “average” experiences or results for our children, our teachers, our administrators, or our parents in the district. Richard is the father of a beautiful, hardworking, and caring daughter. In his free time he loves to hike and explore the wilderness, he is an avid scooter rider, and he enjoys hunting beach glass.
