I’m the Executive Director of the Epicenter. I oversee all aspects of the center. I am responsible for fund-raising, contracts, public relations, staff development and sustainability of the center.
I got involved in the Epicenter back in July of 2014. After retiring from MCOE I was asked to consult with one of the Youth Founders from Napa Voices to start a similar center in Monterey. After a couple of months of consulting, they asked if I would be interested in a full-time position with On The Move (non-profit) and lead the coordination of becoming our own 501c3. I respected the philosophy of the organization of it being youth-centered, authentic youth engagement and promoting youth voice. July of 2019 will mark my 5th year with the Epicenter and 3 ½ years as the Executive Director.
