Welcome New Staff
Thank You, Lynda!
After seven years of outstanding service here at
Camp Fire, Lynda Llavore has decided to leave us
to take on new challenges. She has recently been
offered several interesting opportunities to do
consulting work in areas that she is passionate
about, such as, quality afterschool programs and
programs for immigrant/refugee communities. She
would like to take some well-earned sabbatical
I can’t say enough about the thought, effort,
analysis and energy that Lynda has put into making
Camp Fire more accessible to all area families,
from her initial work on our Bailey-Gatzert and
Seattle Emergency Housing partnerships to the
many Community Family Clubs and Little Stars
programs she has developed recently. She has
been responsible for our Council being honored
repeatedly by the Annie E. Casey Foundation with
awards for exemplary family strengthening
practices. Lynda has been an insightful advisor
and colleague throughout many staffing and
program changes over the years, and we will
always be in awe of her accomplishments and
grateful for her leadership.
While Lynda’s last official day was September 28th,
she will continue managing the New York Life
Discovery grant and presenting our data for it at the
Camp Fire National Leadership Conference in
November. Please join me in wishing Lynda every
blessing and success as she moves
on to her next professional role.
