Becka Kelly joined the Harbor Department in 2000 after a 6 year stint working on different boats as a marine biologist and commercial fishing in Morro Bay, Santa Cruz, Alaska, Hawaii, Mexico and Australia.  She has worked her way up the ladder from Reserve Harbor Patrol Officer and Junior Lifeguard Coordinator to Harbor Patrol Supervisor.  Becka’s love of the ocean, outdoors and helping people in the community she grew up in, makes this the perfect place to work.  She is also lucky to work alongside her husband, Mike, a Firefighter for Morro Bay Fire and while raising their children in this beautiful area.
Lori Stilts

Lori Stilts

Lori Stilts was first recruited by the Morro Bay Police Department in 2007, after spending a few years having a couple kids. Ready to get back to work and have adult conversation, Lori worked part-time as the Property and Evidence Technician for PD.  Shortly thereafter and desiring more hours, she took on a second part-time position in the Water Billing Department at City Hall.  It could be said that the Harbor Department stole Lori from PD and City Hall offering her more opportunity, or at least one full time job. Now working as the Harbor Department’s Business Coordinator, Lori’s main responsibly is to help the Harbor Director get through his day and on schedule. When not working for the City, Lori is a Team Member with The San Luis Obispo Sheriff’s Search and Rescue and drives her kids around to an abundance of 4H and sporting events.

Jeremiah Jacobs spent many of his early years as a lifeguard for various agencies around the county honing his nonexistent paddle board skills and futilely working on a base tan. He gained some recognition as a  sprinter for Cuesta aquatics and is a graduate of the Allan Hancock Fire Academy. Since joining the ranks of the Harbor Department, Jeremiah has proven his dedication by attempting to fix things he has no business touching and inflicting coworkers with his dry, sarcastic humor. Jeremiah considers himself extremely fortunate to be trusted in his role as Harbor Patrol Officer and is proud to serve the community of Morro Bay.

Stella Nicodemus

Hi, my name is Stella Nicodemus!   I’ve been working for the Harbor Department since the fall of 2019. I became a lifeguard in 2016 with experience in 3 different counties. I’m finishing my degree at Cal Poly with a B.S in Environmental Studies with a concentration in Public Safety and fire ecology which has been extremely applicable for this occupation. I enjoy surfing, fishing, and hiking in my free time. It’s hard to pick a favorite aspect of the job but my top is learning from the full-time officers and being involved in this special community.

In 2019 he attended the USLA lifeguard academy to become an aide for the Morro Bay JG program. The summer of 2020 presented him the opportunity to be employed as a beach lifeguard.
