Connie Newhall Executive Director
Connie has been actively involved in the nonprofit world for 25 years -- most recently as Development Director for a global animal welfare organization with sanctuaries all over the world. She loves and appreciates the arts and was a Docent at the SF Museum of Modern Art, a member of the SF Ballet Auxiliary, as well as an Artist's representative early in her career. Connie holds a Bachelor's degree from Northwestern University, School of Communications. Raised in Chicago and Baltimore, she still treasures both cities and the rural life she experienced on her grandparent's dairy farm in Montana. A proud parent, she recently saw her son off to Seattle to embark on his career. Now a Healdsburg resident, Connie loves the natural beauty of Healdsburg and being a part of this vital community.
Dani Wilcox Program Director
Dani brings a rich and varied work history to the organization. After earning a Bachelor’s from UCLA and spending 8 years as the Project Manager for a real estate and land development company based in Bullhead City, Arizona, Dani married, became a mom, moved several times, had a pre-school, owned a store, horse trail guided, volunteer ski hosted, ski instructed, taught art and was a substitute teacher. She finally relocated to Sonoma County with her husband and two children. Dani and her family love Healdsburg and are here to stay!
Gwen Garloff Program Assistant
When you meet Gwen, you'll immediately get a sense of her "save the penny, save the earth generation" -- where conservation is the norm, clothing is home made, produce comes from the garden, and wastefulness is unthinkable. What a natural fit with Farm to Pantry. Her passions include a fondness for up-cycling clothing via sewing, baking, gardening, wake and snowboarding. Most recently Gwen worked for a non profit credit counseling agency for 15 years and helped consumers understand basic money management principles including debt management, credit reports, preparing for home purchase, and more. She has a BA in Psychology from UC Davis.
