Rotaract Project Lead Andy Brock

Santa Barbara Rotaract Project Lead Andy BrockAs President of the Rotaract Club of Santa Barbara, Andy has been committed to Rotary’s mantra of ‘service above self’ for over two years now. Although still growing in the Rotary world, Andy has helped in connecting Rotaract with other local non profits, such as the Santa Barbara Courthouse Legacy Foundation, by chairing a spot on a planning committee to help raise funds for restoration and preservation of the historic landmark. He currently works as a customer experience representative with a medical aesthetic company, hoping to further his career to regulatory and quality assurance.

In his free time you will likely find him traveling, hiking the hills of Santa Barbara, simply relaxing with a good book or movie, or more realistically volunteering at a Rotary event.
