In a story arc reminiscent of Dorothy Gale’s journey from Kansas to Oz, Natalie Arroyo was chased to Humboldt County by a terrible storm, and soon found herself swept up in local politics.

The shiny young Millennial currently splits her time several ways, between a day job as senior planner with natural resources at the Redwood Community Action Agency, serving on the U.S. Coast Guard as a marine science technician, playing in the local indie band Blood Gnome, presiding over Humboldt’s Kinetic Grand Championship as 2011’s Rutabaga Queen, and in November, Arroyo was elected to Eureka California’s City Council, representing the fifth ward and becoming an asterisk to history as part of Eureka’s first all-female city council.

On this episode of Through the eyes of Women, the decidedly progressive Arroyo talks about her very service-minded upbringing and childhood as a “diplomat brat,” the experience of running a first-time political campaign, and her hopes for the future of Eureka and Humboldt County.
