About the Author of 'Emilie's Burden' and the Conservation Consulting

Donald J. (DJ) Funk The author of 'Emilie's Burden,' the poignant story based on the
life of a DJ's mother. She had been subjected to twenty years of domestic abuse, then
was subjected to an assault from her own government. Against all odds, she would
fight for her rights against the U.S. Government and Office of the Attorney General,
eventually resulting in today's legal definition of 'DURESS' and the creation of some of
the first of our nation's laws protecting victims of domestic abuse.

Mr. Funk is Principal with the Conservation Consulting Network of the Central Coast.
For ten years he served as the Resource Conservation District's Executive Director,
Erosion Control Specialist, Project Review Planner, River Restoration project designer
and Project Construction Site Manager. He has coordinated stream restoration and
erosion control projects with USDA NRCS engineers for
twenty years.
