As the Y strives to be the most relevant, forward-thinking nonprofit in Central Florida, we’re always seeking the best and brightest minds to help guide our organization. That’s why we’re pleased to announce the addition of two new two staff members who are recognized leaders in fields.


Dr. Brenda Fettrow, former Cocoa City Manager and longtime friend of the Y, recently joined the Y as District Vice President of the Lake Nona and Brevard County YMCAs. In addition to serving on our Metro board and helping start the Cocoa YMCA Family Center, Brenda, who holds a doctorate in education, also served as president of Brevard Community College’s Cocoa campus.


Rick Shreve, former executive pastor of Mosaic Church in Oakland, FL, has also joined the Y as our new Director of Christian Initiatives. In this role, Rick will be leveraging his extensive contacts and expertise to expand the Y’s outreach to local churches.


We’re also pleased to announce that Ben Marciano, executive director of the Frank DeLuca Y, has been promoted to Vice President; and Jake Steger, executive director of the Roper Y, has been named District Vice President.
