Dustin Marshall Elected to Valley Youth Theatre Board of Directors
Dustin Marshall, founder and director of operations at Community Medical Clinic (CMC), has been voted to a three-year term on the Valley Youth Theatre (VYT) Board of Directors.
"Serving on the VYT Board is truly an opportunity to give back to an organization that has given so much," said Marshall. "The vibrancy of the stage extends into our community. It is important for a healthy, active, and creative city to support theatre."
His clinic, described by one patient as an "urban surprise", prides itself on fast, affordable health care with a personal touch. Marshall credits Lean Six Sigma methodologies for understanding patient needs and promptly addressing them.
"If you check out the clinic on Yelp," he continued, "you'll see us described as professional, friendly, uplifting, positive and outstanding. These same words can be applied to VYT and that synergy makes it easy to serve on its board of directors."
With a B.S. in Entrepreneurship and Medical Imaging from the University of Arizona, Marshall is currently working on his MBA at Arizona State University.
VYT's Board is chaired by Colleen Gautam (Snell & Wilmer L.L.P.) and vice chaired by Frank McCune (APS). Donna Catalfio (Gallagher & Kennedy, P.A.) is secretary and Elizabeth Troutman-Lear (National Bank of Arizona) serves as treasurer. Bobb Cooper represents the theatre as its producing artistic director.
Other current board members include Michele Bax (Ballard Spahr LLP), DR. Martin Blume (Blume Skin Centre), Joe Chandler (Fennemore Craig, P.C.), Darien Evans (iMortgage), Greg Gnepper (Gammage & Burnham P.L.C.), James Rough (Navigant Consulting), Lorna Pederson (KPMG LLP), Dana Campbell Saylor (YWCA Maricopa County), and Laura Stover (Nearhood Law Offices, PLC); Hope Ozer (CITYSunTimes) serves as Chair Emeritus.
