Executive Director Departure

Dear friends and supporters,

I’m honored to have worked with so many truly incredible people over my 14 years here, including staff, volunteers, partners and supporters. And I’m grateful for the opportunity to have worked closely with you all as key stakeholders in this amazing work. I have spent time reflecting on my career goals and how they can align with my priorities at home with my 3 young children (ages 6, 4 and 1 year). I feel it’s best to pursue those professional goals and alignment by exploring different opportunities for growth and change. I hope to be able to continue to work in some capacity locally to support the sustainability and wellbeing of our community at large. 

I truly love CBV and all that we stand for. From the day I started out as the front desk receptionist in 2010, to my last day as Executive Director, I have been and will always be deeply connected to the work we do and the way our staff provides such needed empathy and pathways to healing for the people we serve. I’ve invested a lot of myself into getting to the point today that the agency is ready to make some needed changes to take it to the next level. A new Executive Director will be set up for success to be able to do that.  
My last day will be May 31st. I have been working closely with CBV Board of Directors for the last few months to ensure this is a smooth transition for the agency. CBV’s Deputy Director, Allison Bischofberger, will be stepping into the Interim Executive Director role after 5/31 until our Board of Directors finds the right replacement. Check out the job announcement here.

Thank you all for your amazing work in our community and supporting CBV to empower those that are affected by violence. Thank you for being a part of my journey.
In an abundance of gratitude, 

Stephanie Fischer, Executive Director
