As WellSpring celebrates a decade of partners and champions for our community, we must recognize Geri Marcus. A pillar in the community, Marcus has worn many hats (evaluation coordinator, school psychologist, special services director, education manager for Ocean Beach Hospital, PR and communications, the list goes on and on), but we think her best look is collaborator and community partner at WellSpring. As Marcus says, “The people have been the best part!”
In the case of many organizations, it is common to try and “fix” problems alone. When Marcus and the 0-K Committee met in 2003, they quickly realized that their focus area wasn’t just education or children, it was all services in the community. Through this shift from “me” to “we,” WellSpring began to take shape.
