Staff and Volunteers

Staff and Volunteers

WCF’s staff consists of a part-time Executive Director and a part-time Executive Assistant.

Volunteers are crucial to the success of Foundation endeavors. In addition to WCF’s all-volunteer board of directors, volunteers read and review grant proposals, coordinate with neighborhoods for their block parties, assist with WCF events and communications, attend and help with Friends of the Watertown Riverfront events, make in-kind gifts of goods and services and act as informal advisors.

Executive Director

Cathy Berkley has more than 30 years experience as a senior manager at places as diverse as Apple Computer and Santa Fe County, NM Senior Services. For the past decade her career has been focused on developing community-wide programs in mental health, substance abuse, senior services, and the arts. She has lived and worked in five states, Europe, and Asia.

Jackie Dobson

Executive Assistant

Jacqueline Dobson is a long-term resident of Watertown, a founding member of WatertownTogether, (now Watertown for All Ages), and a committee member of Healthy Aging Watertown.
