presented by Akila Gibbs
Akila Gibbs is a seasoned professional who has devoted herself to the issues associated with our aging population. Before diving headfirst into the non-profit sector, Akila worked in television news for 16 years and was an award winning journalist. As director of public relations for the Alzheimer's Association, she elevated public awareness of Alzheimer's disease in Southern California and was instrumental in raising funds for Alzheimer's research.
In November 2011, Akila presented at the Statewide Senior Center Forum sponsored by the California Commission on Aging and the Congress of California Seniors. She was the 2011-2013 Chair of the Pasadena Executive Roundtable, a consortium of local nonprofit executive directors. Akila joined the City of Pasadena's Senior Commission in 2014, where she currently serves as its president, to gauge and address the needs of our ever changing population of aging adults. That same year, she participated in Senator Carol Liu’s 2014 Pathways Statewide Bus Tour: Innovations in Aging and LTSS, the mission of which was to develop a comprehensive strategy to create an effective and efficient Aging and Long-Term Care system for our state. The Pasadena Senior Center was one of five California sites chosen as a model for best practices in senior care services, and as the leader of the one community in the San Gabriel Valley resource that provides the most services to seniors, she was asked to tour with the group and share her perspective.
Most recently, Akila was one of California Senator Carol Lou’s six 25th Senate District Woman of the Year and was also presented with the Junior League of Pasadena’s 2016 Community Impact Award.
Since joining the Pasadena Senior Center in 2008, Akila continues to lead the organization with passion and spirit, and is fully committed to meet the growing needs of seniors in the years ahead.
