Meet Your New Technicians

Earlier this month, Evan Ostermann and Devon Macdonald joined the District staff as full-time vector control technicians.

Devon worked for the District as a seasonal vector control aide during the 2016, 2017, and 2018 seasons. He joined the District staff as a permanent vector control technician in 2019.

Evan started with the district as a Seasonal Vector Control Aide in the Summer of 2018. Evan was born and raised in San Mateo County, and graduated from Cal State East Bay with a Bachelor of Arts in English. Evan says he enjoys outdoor activities, and spends his weekends hiking, rock-climbing, fishing, and going to the beach.

Since they’ll be taking on plenty of new responsibilities, Devon and Evan will both spend a few months learning alongside an experienced technician before beginning to work on their own. Once they’ve completed training, each new technician will be assigned to a treatment zone consisting of one or more cities and/or incorporated areas.
