Heidi Hernandez, President
“I was born and raised in Ukiah, third generation, and raised my children here as well. As a child, I volunteered at my church and learned then at a young age the impact being of service to others. As a real estate agent with Selzer Realty I jumped at the chance to be on the board of Ukiah Senior Center after Dick Selzer asked for a volunteer to represent the partnership between both organizations.” -Heidi Hernandez firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kristin Kelly, Treasurer
“I was smitten with Ukiah after attending the annual Pumpkin Fest for several years while visiting my oldest daughter. The birth of my grandson clinched the decision to relocate once I retired. After working in Silicon Valley for 40+ years, I retired in the Summer of 2017 from my position as the Associate Director of Accounting & Finance for a nonprofit at San Jose State University. As the CFO, I oversaw all accounting, auditing, budgeting and risk management for the $10M nonprofit corporation which manages three major facilities on the campus.
After settling into my new home in Ukiah, I began looking for an opportunity to volunteer for a nonprofit that added value to the region as well as being actively involved with the community. The opportunity to join the USC Board of Directors gives me that chance to give of my time and to work with others to ensure that the quality of life for our seniors continues to be ensured for the future.”

“I grew up on a farm without excuses; animals, chores before play. I worked the country paper routes in Jr High. My mother taught me that it is better to be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt, Dad’s philosophy was ‘if you cannot talk & work, don’t talk!’ I’ve been the Executive Director for nonprofit organizations, on boards and volunteered many years, as well as a career in teaching. USC was a chance to offer my skills further in the community.” Dale Greenlee email@example.com
"I first volunteered in a hospital as a teenager. As a young nurse, I cared for Seniors in their home. 42 years in Mendocino County I have participated in the life of the community as a nurse, social worker and a volunteer. It was a natural following of my heart that brought me to USC." -Vicki Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
