Founded in Santa Barbara in 1964, PathPoint provides comprehensive training and support services that empower people with disabilities or disadvantages to live and work within their communities. It provides independent living, day and employment services to 2,301 people within San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Kern and Los Angeles counties.

Before her relocation to Santa Barbara several years ago, Isaac had a 10-year career in Chicago as an executive with United Airlines directing Worldwide Reservation marketing and sales performance, organizational development, human resource and training programs.

Her volunteer experience includes co-founding the ABC’s, a nonprofit organization that developed an educational mainstreaming program and fundraising arm for the local school system. She also served as a hiring consultant to the district superintendent for directors and special-needs teachers.

“I joined PathPoint because I want to use my unique experience, as both a parent and business professional, to enhance the contribution of the special-needs community,” Isaac said.

Isaac and her husband, George, have two children. Their daughter, who has Down syndrome, attended Bishop High School and now attends a Life Transition program at SBCC.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
