Cyndy Evans, Executive Director

 My name is Cyndy Evans and I am overjoyed to join the wonderful team at YRCC. Raised in what used to be a sleepy little beach town called La Jolla, CA, upon returning from college my town was no longer sleepy nor little, much to my dismay. My two children were raised in San Ramon, CA, a suburb or San Francisco, where I worked as a Probate and Real Estate Paralegal. Working with seniors, preparing their Wills and Trusts, assisting with Probate accountings, and attending to their Real Estate legalities through Probate, was a very rewarding career experience. 

Shortly after moving to San Ramon, I was offered a position with Pacific Bell Mobile Services, the first mobile phone company in California, which eventually became AT&T. It was an exciting time where my Paralegal skills were exercised to assist in developing vendor contracts to grow our business and build our cellular network. Over the years, my position evolved into becoming the West Region Procurement Manager, eventually to be transferred to Arizona in 2007. 

AT&T gave me multiple volunteer opportunities, from serving meals at the Salvation Army, working many United Way fundraisers, Cancer Awareness fundraisers, and supporting the Tour de Cure for Diabetes. As the Captain of the AT&T Tour de Cure bicycle team, I became a “Champion Fundraiser” competing across the country in fundraising goals for the Tour de Cure. I was presented the President’s award for volunteer activity many years during my time with AT&T. My happiness and satisfaction over the years at AT&T came from mentoring and growing my staff, as well as the many volunteer activities I was able to participate in. 

My husband, Ed, and I moved to Wickenburg in 2015 to leave the rapidly developing congestion in Peoria, CA. We love the small community feel and both serve as volunteers at our church and support a growing orphanage in Africa. Since my retirement in 2019 I have been studying to become a certified Personal Trainer, specializing in Senior and Corrective Exercise. This will be my healthy hobby as I enter this new chapter in my life. 

The move to Wickenburg was my opportunity to venture north and further explore our beautiful state. I was thrilled to find the Yarnell Regional Community Center Executive Director position when it became available. And, of course, even more elated when the position was offered to me. I look forward to working with the amazing team of staff and volunteers serving the wonderful Yarnell community. Hopefully, very soon I will be able to meet you all in person, when we can finally reopen our doors to you. When that happens, please stop by to say hello. My door will always be open as I welcome your feedback, ideas, or just a friendly visit. 

We will all get through this trying Covid19 time as we work together to strengthen and expand the vision of the Yarnell Regional Community Center!
