Robin Waterman, CEO/Executive Director
Start Date: 2008

Robin Waterman earned her doctoral degree in Education from Harvard University in the area of Administration, Policy and Social Policy after spending more than 20 years in the field of non-profit administration. Dr. Waterman has founded and developed community based education programs for low-income, culturally and linguistically diverse families in Denver, Aurora and Commerce City. Dr. Waterman has worked in Aurora since 1999, focusing on promoting resident leadership and self-sufficiency and parent involvement in schools and communities. Dr. Waterman is bi-lingual and bi-cultural and has demonstrated expertise in recognizing the strengths of Latino immigrant families and guiding low-income individuals to simultaneously access services and volunteer time toward program implementation. For these reasons, Dr. Waterman was hired in 2007 to create the ACC and hired by the Board in 2008 to serve as Executive Director.
