The all-volunteer Board of Directors at Q Youth Resources is made up of people from different backgrounds who all believe in QYR’s mission.
Maggie (M.) Rich (President) is a longtime QYR volunteer who has taken on a wide range of positions with The Q Center over their 6 years of service. As a lifelong Kitsap resident and non-profit youth development professional, they care deeply working alongside Kitsap’s LGBTQ+ youth to create community and welcoming spaces. More than anything they care about doing good, well.
When not volunteering with QYR you can find them working on other progressive issues in Washington, walking their two chihuahuas and talking about how amazing Kitsap County is!
Tavis J. Taylor, MD (Treasurer) is a Board Certified Internal Medicine MD who works with Eagle Sweep Clinic, which specializes in transgender care. Dr. Taylor has enjoyed 23 years of intense Internal Medicine practice in a variety of settings, including private solo practice and in remote areas caring for migrant and Native American populations.
Dr. Taylor is single parent and raised his two children in Kitsap County, enjoying his extended family and community in the area. Now that his children have gone off to college and start their adult lives, he can indulge in a more flexible schedule to include travel and assisting under-served communities at tribal/Indian Health Service sites and VA clinics.
Jay Logan (Secretary) works for Kitsap Regional Library and is a recent graduate from the University of Washington’s iSchool, where he received his Master of Library & Information Science degree. He has been volunteering as an adult facilitator for The Q Center since 2007, and has been a member of the board of QYR since 2012.
