Carol Castanon, Executive Director
Carol has been working with families for 30 years both here in Ojai, Ventura, Santa Barbara, and Los Angeles. Her work began as a volunteer with the Los Angeles School District in Special Education, nurturing a love for, and honoring the unique gifts in children and families. "I was incredibly fortunate to work with colleagues who became mentors, and whose profound respect for children continues to inspire me today.

Carol has a degree in Human Development from Pacific Oaks College, and is a professional mediator with families, schools, foundations, and small businesses.
