The Youth and Family Services YMCA is proud to announce the election of Nathalie Dagbovie to its Board of Managers.
Dagbovie is an accountant at Deckers Outdoor Corp., and she has a big heart for helping others.
She is an active community volunteer and enjoys cooking and serving meals at Transition House and the warming shelters in addition to her work with the Youth and Family Services YMCA.
When asked why she joined the Youth and Family Services board, she replied: “Whenever I drive around town or I am traveling, I notice children and young adults lingering on walls with their luggage or walking barefoot and I ask myself this question: What would I do if they were my children? Joining YFS is my opportunity to make a positive impact on these at-risk youth so they can have a better future.”
Originally from Togo, West Africa, Dagbovie lives in Santa Barbara with her husband, Inno, and their two children, Fabrice and Naomi. When she is not busy working, she enjoys cooking, reading and spending time with family and friends.
