Dixon leaving, DiSandro taking Youth Sailing Foundation post

After four years, Eleanor Dixon is stepping aside as YSF Executive Assistant in order to focus on other professional, volunteer, and personal pursuits.

Eleanor came to YSF in August 2016 and has been instrumental in helping the organization grow and prosper. Her people skills are legendary. Most of you know her personally as that vivacious ‘can-do’ lady in the office.

Behind the scenes she has implemented and run our bookkeeping system, donor tracking and program management software. Eleanor has maintained our website and polished all our communications including press releases, social media and email.

I know you all join me in thanking Eleanor for her dedicated service and significant contributions to YSF.

Please welcome Jessica DiSandro to YSF as Eleanor’s replacement. Jessica grew up in Vero Beach and is a graduate of Vero Beach High School, Indian River State College and the University of Florida.

She comes to YSF with a strong background in office administration, having held a variety of positions of increasing responsibility in the areas of accounting and marketing.

Jessica will be working with Eleanor over the coming weeks to learn the ropes and assume her responsibilities. Most importantly, Jessica will learn from Eleanor what makes this organization tick. She truly embodies the culture of service to our young people that is at the heart of the organization. Stop by and say hello!

Jessica can be reached at j.disandro@ysfirc.org.
