Cyndi Green, Treasurer
I have always felt it is our responsibility to give back to our community and help others when we can. I started volunteering with YWCA’s Clark County CASA in 2007 and was an advocate until 2011. I enjoyed working to help families reunite, seeing parents work to regain custody, and most importantly being a voice for a child and speaking on their behalf. I feel that every person deserves to be treated with respect and dignity regardless of their race, sexual orientation, gender identification, family dynamics, or financial situation. I believe it is only through education and awareness that this can be accomplished, the YWCA’s education and support programs work to achieve these goals. I am proud to be part of the YWCA Board and to help in their mission.
Megan Peyton, VP of Board Development
As an attorney in Clark County for the last 12 years, I have seen the effects of domestic violence, mental health, and addiction on many of our most vulnerable community members. The role that members of YWCA take on to assist those community members as they navigate the justice system and try to rebuild their lives is extremely important. To empower those who are struggling requires time, commitment and an open mind to other people’s experiences. I am excited to support the YWCA as a board member as they continue to meet their goal of promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
Kristi Criswell, VP of Fund Development
I joined the Board in April 2017 after briefly serving on the Public Policy Committee. I was raised and vowed that I would teach my children that all people are created equal and deserve the same respect, rights, and freedoms. It is also one of my personal core values to give back to the community in which I live and to model a life of service and compassion for my children. The mission and work of YWCA spoke to my heart as a way to promote the values I care about as well as a way to contribute to my community. I hope to be an integral part of ensuring the continuation of the outstanding work that YWCA does and supporting staff to be able to do so.
Jasmine Rucker Tolbert, VP of Public Policy
Equity is at the center of my values and something I feel is important to have in every community. If we as a community go above the call to equality and remember to give people the support they need to succeed then we can all flourish. YWCA embodies equity through their programs and leadership in Clark County, which makes me proud to serve on the Board of Directors after serving on the Public Policy Committee for the last two years.
