Vivienne has a lifetime of experience in managing and administrating one thing or another including 20+ years at Harvard Medical School and almost a decade at the Museum of Photographic Arts. She is a lifelong bi feminist and swore an allegiance to the nonprofit sector at the age of 15, before she was too old to know better. Joining the Mixte team is a testimony to Mixte’s commitment to being agents of change and working for good.

She has served on countless boards in a variety of capacities. She is currently the 

treasurer of MOXIE Theater Company, the treasurer of Alliance San Diego, and a board member of CARAS – Community-Academic Consortium for Research on Alternative Sexualities. In her beloved home of Boston, she worked in the trenches for the New England Leather Alliance, the National Organization for Women (Boston Chapter), and the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom. Vivienne reluctantly moved to San Diego to get to know her Holocaust-survivor parents and take care of her disabled spouse. Most of the time she wishes she was Cher. Or a toy poodle.
