KindTree – Autism Rocks is proud to introduce our first ever Executive Director, Loretta McNally.
Loretta brings 20 years of diverse nonprofit management experience with an extensive resume of creative and positive problem solving. She has worked for White Bird Clinic, Animal Rescue Teaching, Seattle International Film Festival, Washington Women’s Employment & Education, Tibetan Cultural Association with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the 2002 United States Winter Olympics, and more. In addition, she is a crew coordinator with the Oregon Country Fair and the parent of a daughter living with disabilities.
Loretta is excited to bring her skills and energy to our team of dedicated volunteers and staff as we grow our presence in the community. With the assistance of Charli Overman, STiLE Coordinator, the organization will be focusing on expanding our Skill Training for an Independent Living Experience (STiLE) Program, our Art Program, and of course our unique and essential Friends & Family Camp, coming up on its 24th year. The organization is looking forward to hosting Social Skill Building Fundraisers and developing strong working relationships with our community.
Most importantly, Loretta shares KindTree – Autism Rocks core belief, that providing an environment of acceptance and respect for all people, and freely giving each individual the support they need to succeed, is the true key to unlocking the hidden talents, strengths, and potential in all of us that lead to a successful and happy life.
We look forward to a long and productive relationship. Autism Rocks!
