New Members Join Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care Board of Directors

The nonprofit welcomes the expertise of publisher Will Vasquez and attorney Christopher Jones.

Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care welcomes publisher Will Vasquez and attorney Christopher Jones as new members on its board of directors.

“We are delighted to have such knowledgeable community members joining our board,” said Eileen Bunning, CEO and president of the local nonprofit. “With their energy and ideas, we will continue to work together to find new ways to respond to community needs as this organization has done for 100 years.”

In their capacity as board directors, Vasquez and Jones bring their own field of expertise to Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care.

Vasquez started his own magazine publishing and advertising business specializing in the U.S. Hispanic media marketplace in 1995. His focus is collaborative publishing in print and Web site projects on a national scale. Most recently he has partnered with The Walt Disney Co. to launch its first Spanish language magazine for the U.S. market.

Additionally, Vasquez has a background in real estate as a licensed agent and property manager. Other volunteer interests include coaching basketball for the Goleta Boys & Girls Club and other small neighborhood projects. He, his wife, and their children make their home in Goleta.

Jones is a partner in the Santa Barbara law firm of Eaton, Jones & Michelon. The son of a retired Los Angeles County Superior Court judge and a graduate of the University of Southern California School of Law, Jones’ expertise is in estate planning, estate administration and litigation. He is a member of the Municipal and Superior Court arbitration panels, a court appointed referee and a law instructor at the Santa Barbara College of Law.

In addition to previous volunteer work at VNHC, Jones has given his services to Work Training Programs and Friendship Adult Daycare Center, and is the Santa Barbara County 1st District appointee to the Adult and Aging Network.

Jennifer Goddard is a public relations representative.

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!
