Meet the staff and team members at the Manlius YMCA.
Associate Executive Director
Hello friends, my name is Amber Shannon. I am the Associate Executive Director of the Manlius YMCA. I will be coming up on my 5th anniversary with our Y in May. Members can reach out to me in regard to anything Manlius related, and I am happy to assist or connect them with the right staff member. The Y has become a second family to me over the past 5 years, I have made lasting friendships with members, coworkers, and volunteers. I look forward to walking through our buildings each and every day and can't wait until we are all back together.
Senior Program Director
I've been a part of the YMCA of Central New York since 2016, but have been working for Ys since I've been old enough to work! Send me any membership, Health & Wellness, or just general questions. Heck, if you want to shoot me an email just to say hi, that'll brighten my day! Can't wait to see everyone back at the Y! Hope everyone is maintaining good social distancing, staying safe, and washing their hands frequently.
I joined the YMCA in July of 2019 at the Northwest Family YMCA and recently came over to the Manlius team. Members can reach out to me for all membership questions, concerns, or even if you would like to share a great story about the YMCA. I can't wait to see everyone back at the branch soon!
Membership Desk Supervisor
I joined the YMCA in July of 2006 for my first summer camp job teaching Silver Jewelry making, up in the North Country at Silver Bay, YMCA of the Adirondacks.
As I am the Membership Supervisor at the Manlius Branch, members can reach out to me about membership questions, tennis reservations and lessons, and programs we offer at the Manlius Branch such as Yoga, Tennis, Pickleball, or group exercise classes.
During the COVID-19 situation, members can reach out to me for information regarding holds or cancels, they can ask me about what the YMCA is still doing to support our community, and members can simply call for a chat if they are feeling isolated or frustrated.
Tennis Program Director
I am the Y's full-time Tennis Program Director and joined the team in 2014. I am in charge of Tennis, Pickleball, Kinder Sports, and now Table Tennis. I love working at the Y, working with all levels and ages of tennis players. I cannot wait to have our members back together in the building and playing again on our courts.
