Cassandra has been with BAPC since 2012. She started as a program coordinator and became director two years later. She has over fifteen years of non-profit experience and a Masters in Managing Mission-Driven Organizations from Marlboro Graduate School. She has lived and worked in the Brattleboro area for over 20 years. She loves anything related to performing arts, new experiences, and connecting people to resources (especially when they are other people).
Tobacco Prevention Coordinator
Before working at the BAPC, Rolf Parker received his Master's degree in Entomology from Clemson University. He worked as a technician for the University of Massachusetts as a integrated pest management scout for three field seasons. He helped farmers decrease their dependence on chemical pesticides, and to prevent the chemical contamination of the water supplies in the Connecticut River Valley. Rolf also has worked as a dorm parent, an Algebra and Geometry teacher, a free-lance writer, and a youth activity organizer. He lives with his wife and teenage boy, in Brattleboro, Vermont
Youth and Family Engagement Coordinator
Jac joined BAPC in the summer of 2019. She has over 20 years of non-profit experience working primarily with young people of all ages in the Windham County and Monadnock regions. Much of that time has been spent teaching and being taught the wisdom of improvisational theater. Some of her other joyful ventures include co-founding the Vermont Renaissance Festival, advising Marlboro College's LGBTQ community group, DJing local drag performances and queer dance parties, teaching, directing, and performing stage combat, landscaping and gardening, writing poetry with and about the natural world, and learning the magic of kitchens and food.
