Hey everyone, I am Richelle Santoya the Deputy Director of The Epicenter. I was born and raised in Monterey County in a small town, coming from a small community I noticed that there were not a lot of resources available for us at that time. As it came time for me to figure out what I wanted to do with my life I knew I wanted to contribute to the community and assist underserved populations. Since 2007, I have been working in the youth development field in various agencies. I am proud of the work that we do and the youth that we have served.
