The executive director of a nonprofit set up to serve uninsured children in Glendale is stepping down to take the helm of a domestic violence shelter in Arizona.
Camille Levee — who as the exuberant executive director of Glendale Healthy Kids has become a fixture in the local nonprofit community for the past 5 1/2 years — announced her resignation to the board of directors Thursday morning. She plans to move in May after shepherding through a round of key fundraisers for the nonprofit that has become synonymous with her name.
Levee will assume the executive director position for Time Out Inc., an emergency and transitional shelter for domestic violence victims in Payson, Ariz.
In her letter to the board, Levee said the time was ripe for transition.
“In every organization comes a time when even the most dynamic organization can benefit from new leadership and vision,” she wrote. “I have decided that now is the time for Glendale Healthy Kids.”
