Girl Scouts welcome new board member

Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast welcomes their newest board member, Maria Ventra.

In her role, as the local SoCalGas representative of Ventura County, she serves on several community boards, BGCGV, El Concilio, American Red Cross of Central California, United Way of Ventura County and the Ventura County Economic Development Association (VCEDA). She is deeply rooted in the Ventura County community.

She has received prestigious recognitions for her professional accomplishments and commitment to the community over the past few years, a few of those including the Pacific Coast Business Times’ “Top 50 Women in Business” Editor’s Choice and Hispanic Lifestyle recognized her as a Latina of Influence.

Maria says, “As a young girl, I always wanted to join Girls Scouts and now I am finally one! Removing obstacles of joining the Girls Scouts and broadening its reach for all girls and teens along the Central Coast is of paramount importance.”
