Linda Johnson | Front Desk Coordinator| email@example.com
Linda is a native Californian who has lived in San Diego nearly all of her life, and in North County since 1989. She has worked with non-profit organizations involved in disaster services, water safety, the developmentally disabled, and suicide prevention. Since the early 1990′s, she has been a member of LINC, Lesbians in North County.
In the private sector, Linda has experience as a receptionist, office assistant, and an administrative assistant. She has also worked as an ambulance dispatcher.
Linda believes, “There is a reason LGBTQ people often refer to one another as family. We are good at creating kinships and we need each other.” She is very grateful for community and straight allies, and wept when she saw the first uniformed military personnel march in the San Diego Pride Parade.
Linda welcomes the opportunity to contribute to the efforts of the North County LGBTQ Resource Center.
David Leigh Shearer | Membership Coordinator (Volunteer) | firstname.lastname@example.org
David was born in Illinois but moved to Southern California as a young child. He was educated at San Diego State University then back to Cincinnati, OH, for a graduate degree in music. David returned to California with no desire to live elsewhere. Escondido is his home base, and Palomar College was his former place of employment for twenty-five years as an adjunct instructor . Currently, David works as a part-time Director of Music for an Escondido church. The San Diego LGBT Community Center was the first place he began to volunteer until Max Disposti began the meetings in Oceanside leading to the present Pride @ the Beach. The opportunity to be an early volunteer on the front desk of our new Resource Center allowed David to make many new acquaintances and friendships in our community. He was able to serve as a facilitator to start one of the twelve-step programs at the Resource Center. Now that we have a staff person on the front desk, David wants to continue to volunteer to expand and enhance the programs available to the LGBTQ community here in North County. David is pleased to serve as your new Membership Coordinator.
