Angie Dillon-Shore

Executive Director

Angie Dillon-Shore is honored to continue to serve as executive director of First 5 Sonoma County since 2016, guiding strategic investments in local early childhood programs and systems. She has over 30 years of experience in the fields of human services and education and has earned master’s degrees in counseling psychology and special education.
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.
