Irina joined ATC in 2012, after making the big trek from Washington, DC to San Francisco. Irina holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminology & Criminal Justice. When she’s not at ATC, she’s either planning her costume for next year’s Burning Man or participating in group meditations. She loves Yoga and unicorns, and, even better, unicorns doing yoga. We don’t know why it took her so long to move to California. She was born to live here.

Ivan joined ATC in May 2005 as an Outreach Counselor, and is now our Community Resource Coordinator. Ivan has dedicated his career to working with young people. He has spent the past fifteen years working with at-risk youth in a variety of capacities. For Ivan, working at ATC is somewhat of a homecoming, as he grew up in the Mission, and he is excited to be making an impact in his home community. As a friend of President Clinton and Angie Stone, Ivan also serves as our resident celebrity hook-up.

Corey joined ATC in 2010 as an AmeriCorps VISTA, taking over the role of Community Resource Organizer. In December, 2011, he took over as our Administrative Assistant. Hailing from Florida, Corey can break out in salsa, bachata, and merengue dancing in a moment’s notice. Corey is learning to cook and so far has succeeded with staff lunches – good thing for us! Also, he loves office supplies!

Anna joined ATC as one of our new Outreach Counselors in November of 2011. As a San Francisco native, she is excited to do youth outreach in her home city. When she’s not shopping or reading Gardening For Dummies, Anna loves to travel. From what we’ve heard, she’s a skilled Rugby player, so don’t touch her Thai food or candy unless you’re ready for some trouble. Above all, she is committed to community development, and completely stoked to be part of our team!

Shawn joined ATC’s staff in 2004 as an Outreach Counselor, and is now our Program Manager, and is otherwise known as the Staff Mom. Shawn may have a fondness for European pharmacies, but if you ask her about “football”, she’s all about her Niners, being a life-long San Franciscan. She’s also got the best decorated desk in the office, although the competition is not exactly fierce.
Director & Co-Founder

As co-founder and Executive Director, Rob has been with ATC from its inception. He’s got the gray hairs to prove it. Don’t let his “right-on”s and “for sure”s fool you – this guy is straight out of Brooklyn, though after 18 years on the West Coast, it is getting harder and harder for him to claim New York. You can find him at Starbucks, the Farmers Market, hanging with his niece and nephew, or hiking in the Headlands when not at our office.

Joey joins ATC as one of the new Outreach Counselors. He is a southern gentleman from North Carolina who loves southern cooking, music, and dressing up like Elvis for Halloween. His sense of style, humor, and facial hair are impeccable. Living in San Francisco has always been a dream of his and he is super excited to have an opportunity to work for an organization like ATC.

Lauren joined ATC in January 2013 as our newest Outreach Counselor after working as a health educator, crisis interventionist, and youth advocate. She enjoys eating vegan mac and cheese, roller skating, and playing her accordion (although not all at same time!) When Lauren’s not at ATC, you can usually find her trying to befriend pitbull puppies at the dog park. Although she loves living in the Bay, she will always be a Midwesterner at heart.

Jessica is excited to join ATC as Development Coordinator. Her previous nonprofit experience includes working to improve Bay Area public transportation options, fighting for equality in the criminal justice system, and teaching corporate volunteers how to build community gardens and paint schools. When she’s not busy coming up with fun ways to raise money for ATC, Jessica’s thoughts are consumed by dreams of owning a 1969 Plymouth Road Runner and compiling a Snow White collection that would make most 5-year-old girls jealous.
Events & Donor Relations Coordinator

AJ joined ATC in 2013 after travelling along Route 66 from Indiana – stopping first at the Barbed Wire Museum and the World’s Largest Praying Hands, of course. He’s worked with several non-profits and has always had a propensity towards helping youth. AJ was a radio host for many years – working in various places across the U.S. Eventually, he got tired of keeping up with the Kardashians and found us! On weekends, you can catch him bike riding through Golden Gate Park or walking his high-maintenance but lovable dog, Maxim.

Tori joined ATC as an outreach counselor in 2004, and worked with ATC for the next 3 years. In 2007, she made the ill-fated decision to leave. Fortunately for Tori and ATC, she returned in 2011 to assume the role of Associate Director! Tori has a super busy life: eating rabbit food, roller-skating, loving on her cats, running a trivia night every Tuesday… the list goes on and on. Oh, and did we mention that she also fights crime? If your wallet is ever stolen, you better hope Tori is around.Tweet
