BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Formerly known as VSA-Loudoun, ARTS FOR ALL is an organization for the arts working in partnership with Loudoun County Parks, Recreation and Community Services and the Franklin Park Performing & Visual Arts Center. Arts for All is a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded in 1989 to create a community where all people with (and without) disabilities can come together in an inclusive environment to learn, participate in and enjoy the arts. We're proud to present quality, family-friendly entertainment while providing opportunities for grow.
Jody Rodgers, a mom to a special young adult named Ian Rodgers, joined the board as a small thank you for all the years of joy the organization has given to her son. She is also Vice President of Marketing for Lifetime Tool and Building Products and provides invaluable marketing assistance and experience to our organization as well as occasional and much appreciated comic relief.
Lynn Jarman became involved when her nephew Allen appeared in Winnie the Pooh. She was so touched with the performance that she continued to follow all of the programs. Lynn started volunteering by working on the playbills a few years ago, then joined the board in 2016 and was elected to Vice President in 2017. A teacher with over twenty years experience - 15 in Loudoun - Lynn is currently a 3rd grade teacher with Loudoun County Public Schools. In recent years, she's also worked in an inclusive classroom setting and enjoys helping all children be successful.
Nancy is the mother of Arts for All performer, Maisie, who grew up starring in many shows! After many years working as a systems analyst and manager in technical roles, Nancy currently teaches Special Education with Loudoun County Public Schools. Nancy has served on the board for the past twelve years, and served in a variety of roles including master of marketing, fund raising, grant writing, and secretary.
She has provided strong leadership and guidance in support of our growth and has a talent for coming up with clever alliterative advertising campaign jingles - the ones with the catchy phrases which we all remember and help to remind us how important it is to support Arts for All!
Joannie Satterfield became an Arts for All Loudoun enthusiast after watching its magic come to life in Winnie the Pooh, when her son was in his first musical production. Joannie says, “Imagine a world where each individual gets to use his or her own unique strength, something specific only to him or her, to enrich not only self but the lives of others. That is what AFA is all about.”
Maureen Blake, Member-at-Large A mother of six, Maureen first heard of AFA when bringing her oldest drama queens to their first audition ever - a production of Sleeping Beauty - over fifteen years ago, in an effort to find an outlet for her family’s seemingly endless high energy.
She is currently working at Fannie Mae in business operations and technology, and brings business guidance to our leadership team and updates to our web pages.
