Eugene Family YMCA
Fitness Club

Primary Representative

I have worked at the Eugene Family YMCA since January of 1998. I first started in the preschool classrooms, working adventure summer camps, then moved into billing/membership at the Front Desk and landed in the Health & Wellness Department in 2000. I served as the Health & Wellness Director up to June of 2016. During my years as the Health & Wellness Director I have seen alot of changes, growth and diversity come into our building, programs and services. In July of 2017, I became the Senior Director of Programs for our Y, overseeing all of our programs: Youth Development, Youth Sports, Membership, Tennis, Aquatics, Mentoring, Health & Wellness. In September of 2018, I changed roles and am now the Senior Director of Member Experience (working closely with our membership and housekeeping teams and enhancing the overall member experience at the Y. Working at the Y is an ever dynamic job, with many moving parts, and amazing people; I love it. Outside of the Y, I enjoy time with my family, with my husband Nic and two kids, Cole & Sage. We are an active, outdoor-loving, camping, backpacking, canoeing, hiking, biking family. We play Ultimate Frisbee and enjoy an active and engaging lifestyle. I love living in Eugene and feel like we have a wonderful community to maintain and develop.
