Meet & Greet Our New Regional Director, 

Stephanie Nitahara 

Stephanie Nitahara, a Chicago transplant, has joined the team of Pacific Southwest District and we are so excited to have her as our new Regional Director. Here is a message from Stephanie to you! 


"Hello PSW!  I've been working in the Regional Office for a couple weeks now, have attended a few meetings, met some of the Little Tokyo community, and even some JACLers!  It's been a really exciting time getting to know so many new people, working in such a dense Japanese American population, and having SO MUCH JAPANESE FOOD!  This is such a novel experience coming from the Midwest where the JA population is significantly more widespread geographically.  I'm looking forward to fostering new relationships within the many layers of the great APIA community here in Southern California.  

Thank you for the support so many of you have shown me already, and I'm excited to meeting the rest soon!" - Stephanie Nitahara
