WANDA welcomed Joni Cropper and Gab Layton as our newest Leadership Circle members.

Joni Cropper Head Shot copyJoni Cropper is a UCLA graduate in economics with a career as a VP commercial lender working for Union Bank, Bank of California and most recently, City National Bank.  In 2005, she founded Juarez Children’s Education Program (www.jcepfund.org) sponsoring education for kids from middle school through college, building homes and libraries as well as providing English immersion and mentorship, breaking the cycle of poverty for JCEP graduates. In 2011 she stepped out of banking full time to pursue more of her passions with various local non-profits including Habitat for Humanity, Ronald MacDonald House, 100 Women, and Inn Vision. In addition she has worked closely with Opportunity Fund, and will be joining the board in 2016. She is excited to use her lending and educational experience to provide a hand up to single mothers in our community with WANDA as a member of the Fundraising Committee.
