We’ve experienced some changes this winter at Youth in Arts and have two new faces here at 917 C Street!
At the end of December, Financial Controller Carol Slocum retired her position. Carol had previously served Youth in Arts as a member of our Board of Directors and then as Interim Executive Director, before joining the staff as Financial Controller in 2007. Carol was an integral part of the Youth in Arts staff, and we wish her the very best as she enjoys new adventures with family and friends.
Taking on many of Carol’s responsibilities has been Financial Manager Carla Moceri, who joined our staff in mid-December. Carla’s in-depth experience in finance includes Assistant Portfolio Manager at Dynamic Capital Management/JBT Financial Advisors, Marketing Consultant at Witan Capital, and Portfolio Analyst at GMAC-RFC and Northwest Airlines. Carla is a Charted Financial Analyst who holds a degree in Economics & Finance, from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
Last month, we also welcomed Susan Gordon, Youth in Arts’ first-ever dedicated Development Director. Susan is a creative professional with experience in non-profit development, fundraising, community outreach, licensing and journalism. She was the Development Director for Bread and Roses Presents and the Development Manager at Marin Theatre Company. Susan also created and implemented a grassroots organizing campaign around affordable housing – Marin Family Action. Susan holds a Bachelor’s in Education and a special education teaching credential from University of Missouri and studied journalism at San Francisco State University.
Carla and Susan are in the office most weekdays between 10 and 4, if you’d like to come say hello! If you have specific questions, you can reach them at the phone and email contacts below.
