Who We Are

Board of Directors

Amaryllis A. Watkins

Amaryllis A. Watkins

I’ve been a Board member since 2016, and retired as a deputy director of the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services. I worked professionally in the child and family services arena for more than 40 years. I volunteer with David & Margaret because I have been involved with the agency for more than 35 years, as a social worker and child welfare administrator, a volunteer, and as a mentor to a resident. Having seen this agency from different perspectives, I know that it provides excellent services and fulfills the mission of "renewing hope, inspiring change." I agree with Nelson Mandela that "there can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children." In my spare time, I enjoy line dancing classes, both country and soul.
