Ventura County Sheriff William Ayub Joins Casa Pacifica Board of Directors

Camarillo, CA – Ventura County Sheriff William Ayub joined Casa Pacifica’s Board of Directors in April. He joins 24 other individuals bringing together various fields of expertise - including legal, financial, healthcare, education, business, and community advocacy – all coming together to guide Casa Pacifica in the most successful direction for the vulnerable children and families they serve. “Our relationship with law enforcement is critical in providing a safe community for our youth and families and we welcome Sheriff Ayub’s insight, leadership, and guidance,” said Casa Pacifica CEO Shawna Morris of the newest addition to the Board.
Ayub was elected to serve as the 20th Sheriff of Ventura County on June 5th, 2018. He joined the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office in April of 1996, after serving as a police officer for several years in the City of North Las Vegas, Nevada and the City of Port Hueneme. Originally from the Ventura area, Bill began his law enforcement career in 1985 as a police cadet and reserve police officer with the Santa Paula Police Department. He went on to attend and graduate from the Ventura County Criminal Justice Training Center in 1990, earning top honors in firearms marksmanship, physical fitness, and personal traits. Ayub has a long history of volunteerism including as a little league assistant coach and member of the board of directors. He also served as president of the Ventura Sheriff K9 Foundation and continues to serve as a member of the Executive Council for the Southern California Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics.
Casa Pacifica’s Board recently underwent some unexpected reorganization with the passing of their Board President William Powell in February. Board Vice President Robert Wynner of Nevers Palazzo Packard Wildermuth and Wynner, PC was voted in as President, a position he was already set to take in July 2021. Ventura Rentals co-owner Heidi Whitcomb assumed the position of Board Vice President. Other Board Officers include: Eric Shain, Treasurer; John S. Broome, Jr., Assistant Treasurer; Terri Parks, Secretary; and Rosalind Warner, M.D., Past President.
