  Board of Directors
Michelle Jacobson - President
Michelle and her husband, Steve, had had Yarnell as their home away from home since 2005, visiting from Ohio and Connecticut as often as possible prior to becoming full-time residents. Over the years, the Community Center was always a go-to place to explore and has been a resource for both friendship and service. She completed a thirty-year career at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, having held numerous leadership positions in university administration. She believes that all communities have needs that can only be met through public service, and that the Community Center plays an integral part in the lives of our residents. She is honored to have had the opportunity to serve on the YRCC board, and hopes to fulfill a second term as the Community Center continues to diversify and grow.

Steve Spence - Treasurer
Being a mortician for many years, I found that helping people cope with the loss of loved ones was all about helping those left behind and showing compassion for the living. After retiring in 1998, I wanted to leave the big cities and needed something meaningful to do, so I begana volunteering wherever I could.
      I enjoy volunteering at the Community Center, belonging to the Garden Club and helping my neighbors. I look forward to serving on the Board and working with my fellow board members. Yarnell is full of wonderful people and I hope to meet them all.
Leah Tidey -- Secretary
Leah Tidey and her husband, Chuck, moved to Yarnell in 2007. Leah has been a volunteer at the Community Center since 2011. She is also actively involved in the Yarnell Community Garden Project and the Yarnell Fire Auxiliary.
Kurt Florman -- Member at Large
Kurt and his wife, Jerry, moved to Yarnell in 2002. They built their own home (their third), which was destroyed in the 2013 Fire.
     Kurt is an editor/publisher, and a former engineer, contractor, and CADD specialist.
Rebecca Wilks -- Member at Large
Rebecca is a retired OB-Gyn and now works as a professional photographer. She and her husband, Marco Cecala, have lived part time in Yarnell since 2005 and expect to be full-timers soon.  She's also active in Arizona Rotary and Through Each Others Eyes, a nonprofit which creates international cultural exchanges with photographers.  She looks forward to lending her time and energy to the Center, a central part of our communities.

Phyllis Billeter -- Member at Large
Originally from Canada, having lived in five different states, Phyllis recently purchased a home in Peeples Valley after enjoying two years in the Yarnell area. She sees the YRCC as a place to learn new things, meet new friends and enjoy our community. Many of you will recognize Phyllis from Dollar General where she is the assistant store manager. A member of the Community Garden Project and home renovator, Phyllis is looking forward to establishing her home within this community.
Brent Jordan -- Vice President
I'm honored to have been  considered for a position on the board of the Yarnell Community Center. I was working in the kitchen before I had even moved up here officially. Other opportunities and jobs have pulled me away from the Center, but I have a piece of my heart here. I have my Bachelors of Science in Horticulture and my Associates in Graphic Design. I have worked in non-profits most of my life, preferring them to large corporations. So I understand that it takes dedication, creativity and support to make a nonprofit a success. 
     At my current position of Office Coordinator at the Wickenburg Chamber of Commerce, we have a paid staff of three. We all wear many hats and have a wide range of responsibilities. We count on and value our volunteers, without whom we couldn't put on such events as Gold Rush Days.
     Skills I can bring to the table are: organizational, practical application, creative thinking and empathy, to name just a few. It takes everyone in town to make it work, and I am pleased to have the opportunity to support my town and the great work the Yarnell Regional Community Center does.
