Morgan Perry, Youth and Family Director

My name is Morgan Perry. I have a passion to serve children and love to help them grow into fun, strong, confident individuals, which is why I’ve been working as a Children’s Minister for the last 5 years. In that time my family, which includes my husband, Caleb Perry, and our two girls, have made Washington our home. We love walking or riding our bikes to the park, playing games, and traveling. I’m so excited to continue to serve our community and to get to know each and every one of you!

Brandy Washler, Finance Director

Hi, my name is Brandy Washler. I am a lifelong Hoosier originally from Connersville, IN, and my family and I relocated to Bedford, IN in early 2021. I graduated from IU with a Bachelor’s degree in Business and Economics and received my MBA from USI in 2020. I have worked in Finance and HR for over 15 years, and specifically for YMCA associations since 2012. The mission of the Y and the value the organization brings to the community continues to be a strong passion of mine.

Jessika Henning, Aquatic Director

My love for the water started at a young age as my parents enrolled me in swim lessons at the YMCA in Evansville where I was born and raised. After that, I participated in various other swim lessons and have been a swim instructor and lifeguard through the YMCA since I was 16 years old. Teaching children how to swim is one of my passions along with outreach, missions and music. I love playing and singing guitar in my spare time as well as spending time with my husband, TJ, and our two dogs and cat. We enjoy escape rooms, roller coasters, going to the movies, to name just a few. I am ecstatic to continue to work at the YMCA in this new role and look forward to serving this community. 

Miranda Mandabach, Youth Coordinator

I was born and raised here in Daviess County. Growing up, the YMCA played a notable part in my youth and teenage years, whether it was playing youth basketball, attending one of the many youth programs offered, or later using the wellness center for a healthier lifestyle. Which is why I am very excited to be in this position and can’t wait to work with the youth and others in the community!
