Volunteer Spotlight: Gayle Yamazaki

Written by: Space Foundation Editorial Team

These Volunteer Spotlight articles profile some of the interesting and dedicated people who make Space Foundation programs possible. We could not do the work that we do without the generous and tireless support of our volunteers. This week, we are featuring Space Foundation Discovery Center volunteer Gayle Yamazaki

Gayle did a variety of work during her career. She formerly worked in aircraft maintenance for the United States Air Force, started a publishing company, was a behavioral health educator, and an assistant professor. She has also worked as an online educational technology consultant, did collection management, and has worked for nonprofit organization operations. Gayle feels very fortunate that’s she’s been able to call the Colorado Springs area home for 32 years.

Yamazaki primarily volunteers in the Collections area at Space Foundation Discovery Center where she enjoys learning new things and appreciating how each artifact speaks to the accomplishments of the people who have made space exploration possible.
