Shari Kurita

Assistant Director

Shari first joined ILRC in 1998 as our Education Program Administrator, following her work at the University of Washington in the Office of Minority Affairs. With a background in education, and the daughter of a former public school teacher, she is particularly dedicated to our educational initiatives and focus. Named the Assistant Director in 2000, she has since expanded her focus to encompass budget, finance, human resources, agency and office administration, in addition to technological support, development and production for our manuals, trainings, and other services. While being a home-grown gal from Stockton of the Central Valley, Shari has enjoyed living in some of the world’s most beautiful places – Seattle, Zurich, and the Bay Area!
