Stephanie Monroney, Interim Executive Director
Stephanie spent the first 25 years of her professional life in corporate finance and accounting, beginning with Price Waterhouse and later working in CFO and Controllership roles for both large companies like GE and smaller distribution and retail companies ranging in size from $18M to $350M in revenue. The career was both challenging and rewarding but, over time she knew that something important was missing in her life. She left her corporate career in 2015 and plunged into the non-profit world where she was drawn to working with vulnerable people, those living without food and shelter, neighbors coping with mental illness and substance abuse, and people of all ages who are facing devastating diagnoses or who are in the final stage of their lives. Her work as the Director of Queen Anne Food Bank in Seattle and her ongoing volunteer efforts as a hospice and respite provider opened her up to the realization that we are all interconnected in our basic human frailty but that we also can provide so much strength and support to one another through the simple act of companionship. She is honored to be a part of Plymouth Healing Communities.
Chris Wilcynski, Director of Community and Social Services
Allowing service to be a guiding force in Chris’ life has led her to amazing places, including the Peace Corps, providing educational support for kids living in low income housing properties, engaging in intense therapeutic work with children and families in crisis, and opening a restaurant, as well as PHC. She initially began her commitment to PHC as the House Manager, then assisted in the formation of the Community Companion Program and has recently shifted her role to the Director of Community and Social Services. Other sources of great joy in her life are her husband and 3 kiddos, running, exploring new parts of our world, playing with friends, and getting outside.

David keeps his inner engineer and idealist happy by incorporating environmentally sustainable technologies and practices wherever possible. When he’s not responding to emergencies at the apartments, he tries to catch up with his two active teenagers.
Drew Dasse, Operations Manager
Having graduated from Full Sail Private University with a background in Digital Media and Fine Arts, Drew has always found creative ways of fighting for social justice and advocacy. In 2005, Drew spent a year painting a 25-piece exhibit in Central Florida to raise awareness and funds for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. While living in East Tennessee, he started a local publication that focused on politics, culture, arts and entertainment, in hopes to unite and provide an outlet for LGBT persons. Shortly after relocating to Washington, Drew worked as an Executive Assistant at a property management and realtor firm. Having learned the intricacies in the Seattle housing market, Drew is thrilled to be part of the staff at PHC and is looking forward to sharing his inspirations and expertise to this great organization.
