Darin Christense, CEO
Heather Osborne, Program Director
Chief Executive Officer
As the CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters, Darin brings 19 years of working in not for profit leadership and operational management to the organization. Beyond his professional experience, Darin has been working with youth support organizations for 25 years.
Darin is a native Washingtonian and has been here in Spokane for six years. Darin and Jennifer are the parents of three great kids. As a family they feel blessed to enjoy the great active lifestyle that Spokane provides every day. “I am so excited to see the daily achievements, both big and small, of the children in our community, and I hope to make that experience open to all kids.”
Heather has a Master’s Degree in education and has over 10 years of experience working with families and children. She has been employed with Big Brothers Big Sisters for three years and just recently took over as the Program Director last January.
Having grown up in a small town in Alaska, Heather enjoys the “big city feel” Spokane provides without the worries of a large city. Heather and her husband Mitch have two children. Their family enjoys walking to many of the local parks Spokane has and admits to loving the fact that she is a “soccer mom”. Heather enjoys hearing from both bigs and littles about the positive changes that the children in our program have made while being matched. “This is truly rewarding to hear and reminds me of why I love working for Big Brothers Big Sisters”.
