All Staff Vali Martin Associate Executive Director Southwest Family Y Send a Message Languages Spoken English I’ve been with the Y for 16 years. My background is in childcare management, and I started at the Y’s licensed preschool and went on to be the preschool director. When the Southwest Family Y underwent its renovation, I moved into branch operations. I feel grateful and fortunate to work at a place that feels like home. The best part of working at the Y for me is getting to know so many people from our community. I studied music in college and am an avid “live music” and fine arts fan. You may see me around town on any given Friday or Saturday night enjoying live music from amazing local artists.
