Perrotto will bring local knowledge and broader experience to the center. She began her career with SARCC before working for the National Sexual Violence Resource Center and the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape.

She brings a plethora of experiences with clients, community activism, and nonprofit management that will benefit SARCC as we move forward," said Christine Verdier, search committee chair and vice president of the board of directors.

Perotto has a master's degree from Pennsylvania State and a bachelor of science degree in social science economics from the University of Scranton, according to the release.
