Angie tiene el honor de servir como directora ejecutiva de First 5 del Condado de Sonoma, guiando inversiones estratégicas en programas y sistemas locales para la primera infancia. Tiene más de 30 años de experiencia en los campos de servicios humanos y educación y obtuvo maestrías en psicología de consejería y educación especial.
Prior to coming to First 5, Angie spent much of her career working in community-based settings, including Community Action Partnership of Sonoma County, where she oversaw school readiness, parent education, school health, housing and youth development programs. Throughout her career, she has been inspired by the resilience of the children, youth and families she has had the privilege to serve. Working across sectors – public education, nonprofit and government – has taught her that to solve social problems, communities must prioritize investing in prevention, addressing structural inequality and eliminating gaps in opportunity, especially for young children. Angie lives in Guerneville with her wife, Nancy and their two French Bulldogs. In her free time, she loves kayaking the Russian River, playing with her grandson, and dancing to live music.
