Ann Wondolowski to take leave of absence from board to help as Interim Executive Director

John Lipp has stepped down as our Interim Executive Director, he has received a great opportunity with another local nonprofit closer to home.  We thank him for his help and support over the last few months and wish him luck in his new adventure.  John will stay connected with Town Cats by helping with special projects for the board, his first area of focus is helping Town Cats to develop a fundraising plan.

As we continue to evaluate the needs in leadership for Town Cats, Ann Wondolowski has agreed to take a leave of absence from the board to help as Interim Executive Director.

Ann Wondolowski joined the board in June 2014. She is a retired Information Technology Leader who spent over 25 years in the high tech industry. She served as the Chief Information Officer at Force10 Networks, and prior to that held a variety of senior level roles at Sun Microsystems. In her “Second career” Ann has started working in the Nonprofit sector, and most recently has been a Project Manager at the Humane Society Silicon Valley. She has worked as a volunteer with a variety of Nonprofit groups, including SeniorNet of San Jose, Community Leaders at the Service of Society (CLASS), MentorNet, Junior Achievement and Golden Gate Lab Rescue.

Ann holds a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from UC Berkeley, an M.S. in Chemical Engineering and Computer Science from Stanford University, and an M.B.A. from Southern New Hampshire University. She has two dogs (one rescued through Golden Gate Lab Rescue and the other adopted from HSSV), one cat who was recently adopted from the Humane Society Silicon Valley, and the occasional foster dog. She is excited at the opportunity to work with Town Cats and help make a difference for the cats and the community.
