The YWCA of Spokane has named Regina Malveaux as its executive director.

She previously served as executive director of the YWCA South Hampton Roads in Norfolk, Va., and as a legal advocate for the YWCA San Diego. She is founding director of the Women’s Legal Center in San Diego.

Regina, who is recognized as an advocate for women, youth and children, has served on boards aimed at advancing racial justice and economic empowerment including the San Diego NAACP, San Diego Dress for Success and Second Chance.

She has also trained a new generation of advocates as an adjunct professor in political, women’s and African-American studies at La Sierra University, San Diego State University and at the Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity at Old Dominion University.

Her undergraduate degree in social policy is from San Diego State University and her law degree from Howard University School of Law. During law school, Regina served as both a White House and a Congressional intern, first for First Lady Hillary Clinton and then the Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, the Honorable Maxine Waters. 

She replaces Trish McFarland who retired in December.
