For the past two years, Dana Kiesel, Ph.D. has been an incredible Board Chairwoman to Imagine LA. Dana has been a thoughtful, and caring leader who consistently ran timely, and thought-provoking board meetings. During her tenure she oversaw the implementation of best practices in Board Governance, which included use of a consent agenda and a transparent Board Performance dashboard. Dana provided invaluable insight and has led Imagine LA to have one of its most banner years yet - doubling the number of families served in one year. Imagine LA will miss her leadership, but we know she's never far away as she will continue to serve as a Board Member on our Executive Committee and Chair of the Program Committee.
Dana officially passed her "gavel" to David Goodenough, currently Board Treasurer, who will lead Imagine LA as Board Chairman for a two-year term. David, also an experienced Imagine LA mentor, is the SVP for UBS Private Wealth Management.
