Hey everyone! I am Richelle Santoya, the Executive Director of The Epicenter. I was born and raised in a small town in Monterey County. 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 for various agencies. I am proud of the work that we do and the youth that we have served. Working alongside our youth to make the communities they live in a better place has been the highlight of my career. I look forward to this opportunity as Executive Director to assist youth in a multitude of ways and make a positive impact in their lives.
