NWDSA welcomes new board members and staff

We are excited and grateful to welcome two new members to the NWDSA Board of Directors. Isis Sanchez and Dr. Ruth Falco, PhD are both long-time members of the NWDSA community.

Ruth is Director at the Research Center on Inclusive and Effective Educational Practices at PSU, and has been an NWDSA advisor and supporter since the earliest days of the RLC and the All Born (In) conference.

Isis has a BA in Healthcare Administration from Warner Pacific, and is Administrative Assistant & Graduate Support Coordinator at St. Andrew Nativity School. She is also mom to 7-year-old Diego. Isis has been an active NWDSA volunteer for several years, helping with events and outreach to the Hispanic community, including translation, phone support and the Promotores leadership program.

Pamela Dye, a recent graduate of PSU’s Child and Family Studies program and mom to Jasmine, completed her PSU practicum this spring with the NWDSA. We are thrilled to add her energy to new parent/community outreach. She will also be engaged in many of our birth through 5 programs, such as directing the RLC.
