YES recently announced that Davina Roberts and Francesca Zeltmann have joined the YES Community Counseling Center Board of Directors.
“We are extraordinarily excited about the additions of Ms. Roberts and Ms. Zeltmann to YES’ Board of Directors,” YES Executive Director Adrienne LoPresti said. “They will be joining a talented and dedicated group of community members who understand how important it is to take care of their corner of the world.”
Roberts is a Massapequa native and is thrilled to join the board at YES. She has always had a passion for serving her community and is excited to work alongside a group of professionals who have a wealth of knowledge and experience. Roberts has a background in marketing and currently works at BioIVT serving as their marketing coordinator. Prior to that, she worked as the digital marketing manager at IC Summits, where she led online initiatives.
Roberts has a passion for serving her community and lending a helping hand wherever possible. YES is an organization that embodies this notion and this was a driving factor that led her to want to join the board. Previously, Roberts has been involved with non-profit work in New York City, working with agencies that help children in need of school supplies and guidance and in college worked with Girls Inc. Roberts hopes to be a positive addition to the board and is personally delighted to be a part of the upcoming endeavors YES will accomplish in 2022.
