NORWICH – The Christian Neighborhood Center of Norwich, Inc. – aka The Place – has named Courtney Crisler its new executive director.
Crisler – who replaced Dave Sheldon as director in mid-March – graduated from the California State University, Chico, Calif., in 2000, with both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in recreation and administration. In July of 2010, she and her husband moved to Chenango County, where her extensive background in community outreach and non-profit work immediately drew her to The Place.
“When I saw this opportunity I thought ‘that sounds like my cup of tea,’” said Crisler. “I love the sense of community involvement here and it’s something I’m really passionate about. It’s been exciting meeting the people that make up this community, they’re so friendly and my husband and I feel very, very welcome.”
