2017 WSPA Board of Trustees

 


Add your voice to WSPA’s leadership!

WSPA is always looking for passionate, creative, and service-oriented individuals from early career to advanced career psychologists to help foster our mission.

The board of trustees is responsible for guiding the association by adopting ethical and legal governance and financial management policies to advance WSPA's mission. New trustees can be added throughout the year and meet monthly, either in person or via teleconferencing.

Members of the board also chair association committees and represent WSPA on statewide initiatives and at APA national conferences. A maximum of 7 trustees make up the board and leadership is open to all premium and platinum level members. Board terms last two years and a trustee may serve no more than two consecutive terms. A trustee may return to the board after a 1-year absence. 

If you are interested in serving on the board of trustees, please email a letter of interest and CV to our Executive Director Marvo Reguindin. If you have specialized skills or experience in management, marketing, or finances, please include them in your letter of interest.

Julia Mackaronis, Ph.D.

Trustee 

I am a clinical psychologist, licensed in Washington. I work in the Mental Health Clinic of the Mann-Grandstaff VA Medical Center. I am also applying for an adjunct faculty position at the University of Washington (UW), as I supervise psychiatry residents and will be teaching a cognitive-behavioral therapy seminar for the UW-affiliated Spokane Psychiatry Residency.
I have been a member of the WSPA since I became licensed in 2015. As an early career psychologist (ECP) who spent several years moving to several different states to pursue training opportunities, it was important for me to connect to other psychologists at both the local and state level once I felt more settled. I felt welcomed and encouraged at the Chapter 1 meetings I attended, and decided to increase my involvement by volunteering to serve as the chapter’s 2016-2017 president. I greatly enjoyed my first year. My duties included organizing four chapter meetings with networking and one-hour Continuing Education presentations, coordinating referral requests for the chapter listserv, and helping my members feel more fully integrated into WSPA’s statewide efforts. I look forward to another productive year, and I wish that all interested WSPA members could have the chapter-based experience I have enjoyed.

Dr. Breedlove joined WSPA to begin researching possible leadership opportunities across the state.
