Camp Yakety Yak Board of Directors
Angela Sullivan (formerly Arterberry)
Angela, or Miss A, is a speech-language pathologist with 19 years of experience working with children in public school settings. She began Camp Yakety Yak in 2010 in response to the lack of accommodating activities for her child with ADHD. Angela received her Masters in Speech Pathology & Audiology from University of Nevada, Reno, and a Reading Specialist endorsement from George Fox University.
She lives in West Linn with her children, new husband John, and sweet fluffy dog. The whole family works at camp in the summertime.
Cynthia has been an Advisory Board Member since 2016 and recently took on the Treasurer role. She has been in the field of victim services for nearly 30 years and has served clients directly as well as being an administrator of state and federal grant funds and leader in the formation and implementation of public policy. Cynthia serves as the Legislative Coordinator for Child Welfare at the Department of Human Services.
She and her husband John live in Salem and have three spirited children who attend Camp Yakety Yak. This is their 7th year as campers.
Erin comes to Camp Yakety Yak with more than 26 years of government and nonprofit-based experience in building innovative efforts that support strong and healthy
communities. The last 16 years, operating as the executive director of a crisis support center, was focused on ensuring equal and meaningful access to recovery services for survivors impacted by interpersonal violence. She strongly believes that an individual’s ability to thrive is directly linked to the services available to them. Her educational background includes a Bachelor of Science in Community Health Education with graduate studies focused on nonprofit management. Erin has spent her adult life here in Portland and currently lives with her husband, teenage daughter, and the family dog. Their free time is spent exploring Oregon in their trusty Volkswagen Vanagon named Endeavour.
Since marrying Angela, John's life and the camp have changed significantly! John is a board consultant on financial matters, operational processes, as well as development and implementation of a strategic plan. In the business world, he served as Chief Operation Officer at Independent Retirement Consulting in Portland where he focused on developing working partnerships with investment advisors, CPA's and attorneys. He has also worked as Vice President/Relationship Manager of Executive Benefits for Wells Fargo Bank and Director, Retirement Services for McCamish Systems.
Currently, John works for Newport Group in Retirement Services.
