Scott Rohrer

Executive Director

Scott has a dozen frequent flyer cards. He has managed many types of organizations in many countries and in many industries. He’s also started two non-profit organizations and traveled the world as a Missions Pastor. Scott chose to join Habitat for Humanity in 2015 because of its mission. He says, “I’ve made widgets for a living and I’ve helped people for a living. Helping people is a lot more rewarding, and that’s what Habitat is all about.”

juline bodnar

Associate Executive Director

Juline has never met an animal she’d not adopt in a heart-beat (well, except snakes, of which she is deathly afraid…). When Juline is not working on numbers or listening to people, she enjoys spending time with her family playing board games, reading, hiking, and playing with her pets, which currently include a German Shepherd, four chickens, and several Koi fish. She’d love a pygmy goat but her husband has said “Enough!” (for now…). Juline works to make the numbers make sense at Habitat. Whether it is a complicated mortgage, a fiscal budget, or next quarter’s cash flow, she’ll likely be in the midst of it!

Sophie Paez

Director of Retail Operations

Despite a completely irrelevant education and work history (photography! natural science!), Sophie has found a pretty incredible fit at Habitat. After a week spent in the thick of humanity, she enjoys running off into the forest alone. Promoting reuse for the benefit of the community and its members has become a true passion, and she’s thankful to come to work everyday alongside others who enjoy what they do.

jacob clark

Director of Construction

When he is found (or not found) off the beaten path on any given weekend, Jacob enjoys adventures from 3000 km hikes across New Zealand to the highest free standing mountain in the world. Jacob brings a unique perspective on efficient and affordable shelter to the team. Jacob proudly builds homes and changes lives through shelter.

Scott Brown

deedee johnson

Director of Family Services

DeeDee assists with homeowner selection and education and creating programs that help people be the best version of themselves.

catalina frank

Homeownership Program Manager

Catalina is originally from Colombia (not Columbia), and with Spanish as her first language, can pretend she is not listening really easily. She loves to have quiet time to read historical novels, writing and making non-functional artifacts. Catalina is passionate about helping people to un-stock, whether that means buying a new home or pushing a button or two.

robin cooper engle

Director of Development & Media Relations

Robin is passionate about red licorice, running & traveling. When she is not working, she is a taxi driver & adventure seeker for her company, Two Tweens with Attitude. Robin loves igniting passion in the community through fundraising & helping people to see how they can partner with Habitat.

mellissa kamanya

Development Manager

Mellissa casually uses slang from the 90’s in her everyday speech. It’s kinda her jam. She is able to make up song parodies on the spot, with a specialty in parenting tracks. Mellissa fundraises and builds community relationships with depth and roots.

Construction Volunteer Coordinator

Susan loves to see the world, from her hometown in the Redwood Forest to the Base Camp of Mt. Everest. When she’s not traveling she enjoys yoga, skiing and generally being in the outdoors.
