Staff Spotlight: Johari

December 21, 2018

Johari Matthews was recently named Executive Director of the Northwest Family YMCA. Johari holds a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Tennessee State University. The Nashville native has spent 15 years with the YMCA of Middle Tennessee, including eight years with school-aged programming before moving on to the Margaret Maddox Family YMCA as the Senior Program Director.

“This opportunity means so much to me because I am a local Nashvillian, and, more importantly, I live in the community, and I am passionate about this area," Johari says.  "My husband and I have served in various roles in the community over the last ten years, and we are more than excited to be able to not only raise our family here but also to live, work, and play in the same area.

“I am excited about sharing my vision with others, building a strong staff team, and being able to merge the amazing history of the center with what is to come in the near future. This center means so much to so many people, and I am more than honored to be able to continue all of the great work that has been paved before me.”

Johari, who also serves as the YMCA’s African-American Resource Network co-chair, has a servant’s heart and an infectious passion for serving others. Help us welcome her as she begins her new journey as a member of the Northwest Y family.
