Please join us in welcoming Georgina Griffith-Yates as Wasatch Community Gardens' new Executive Director! Georgina possesses an extremely solid background in nonprofit management. She has spent the last seven years in the nonprofit field, leading work to advance college and career readiness technology in Utah schools. Her expertise lies in organizational development, team leadership, marketing, and designing accessible programs for diverse populations. She has led significant organizational growth in her career and has experience with developing a collaborative vision for new and expanding programs. Quite simply, Georgina is a dynamic and visionary leader.
Georgina’s education background is impressive as well. She received her Master’s in Public Administration with an emphasis in Nonprofit Management from the University of Utah. She is currently in her third year of a PhD in Political Science, Nonprofit Management and Civil Society Track, at the University of Utah.
Georgina loves spending time tending her garden with her wife and their menagerie of rescue animals. She is ecstatic to be at Wasatch Community Gardens, and we are, of course, ecstatic for her to join us!
Georgina will start on August 10, allowing for a full month of overlap with Ashley so that there is a smooth hand-off of the Executive Director baton. Ashley’s last day at WCG will be September 10.
