Scott grew up in the Mt. Diablo foothills. Exploring rural surroundings at home formed an enduring imprint. Moving to the Monterey Peninsula in 2000 intensified an appreciation for nature’s perennial beauty. After working in management and Controller/CFO positions within large corporations and small businesses, Scott now serves as Chief Financial & Administrative Officer for the Central Coast YMCA. He holds a degree in Finance from UC Berkeley. Being a dad to three grown children provided an opportunity to witness first hand how a passion for the outdoors is set in motion. Scott considers it a privilege to support an organization that cultivates that passion in others while preserving a resource both powerful and fragile.
