Read about the Director, Angie Carnevale

 Angie has been with the YMCA since 2007. She started as a childcare assistant and moved up throughout the years while attending college. Angie graduated from CSUF in 2012 and received a B.A in Communicative Disorders. Ultimately, Angie was promoted to childcare director at Truman Benedict. She loves where she is now within the YMCA because she attended Truman Benedict Elementary School as a child and feels that she can now give back to her very own community!

Assistant Director, Laurie Hamilton

Laurie started at the YMCA in February 2017. She previously worked at Pretend City Children’s Museum for four years in a myriad of positions. While at Pretend City, she learned many of the ins and outs of running a non-profit, and she greatly enjoys being able to use that knowledge to benefit her branch while working directly with kids. Laurie received her degree in Education, specializing in Child Learning and Development, from the University of California, Irvine. Laurie is passionate about helping children receive a high-quality education regardless of race, class, gender, ability, or socioeconomic status (SES). Children from low SES households enter kindergarten with 30 million less vocabulary words than their peers from middle and high SES families. Research shows that that gap only widens through time. Laurie believes she has what it takes to help those kids minimize that gap and obtain the best in life. When not hanging around a bunch of kids, you can find Laurie with her nose in a book, hiking and camping with her family, or performing classical music.
