Meet Gwen
 

GWEN VUCHSAS

President

Where are you from originally? If not from LA, how did you end up here?
I was born and raised in Santa Monica, CA, a total native of the area.
 
Tell us about your occupation.
I am Director of Operations of a private investigation and security company, SECO Investigative Services. I have a second career as “Grammy” to my 3 grandchildren that keeps me pretty busy.
 
Why did you join Rotary and what is your favorite Rotary experience?
I joined Rotary 25 years ago so I am a veteran of Rotary and a charter member of Playa Venice Sunrise. Rotary has changed my life as I look at my life before and after I became a Rotarian. One of my favorite Rotary moments was when a high school student I mentored through a high school Interact Club told me that her high school experience had been completely changed because of Rotary’s involvement in her Interact Club. She told me that she hoped someday to also become a Rotarian and help others.
 
What does your perfect weekend look like?
My perfect weekend is going to a Dodger or Trojan game with my family and dinner with friends with a Rotary Service project sandwiched in there!
