WSPA Board of Trustees
Add your voice to WSPA's leadership!
WSPA is always looking for passionate, creative, and service-oriented individuals from early career to advanced career psychologists to help foster our mission.
The Board of Trustees is responsible for guiding the association by adopting ethical and legal governance and financial management policies to advance WSPA's mission. New trustees can be added throughout the year and meet monthly, either in person or via teleconferencing.
Members of the board also chair association committees and represent WSPA on statewide initiatives and at APA national conferences. A maximum of 11 trustees make up the board and leadership is open to all premium and platinum level members. Board terms last three (3) years and a trustee may serve no more than two consecutive terms. A trustee may return to the board after a 1-year absence.
If you are interested in serving on the Board of Trustees, please contact our Executive Director, Marvo Reguindin at email@example.com and provide us with your name, contact information, and a brief rationale for your interest.

Megan Wagoner, Psy.D.
I am a licensed psychologist in private practice in Seattle. I enjoy working with adults using lenses of psychoanalytic, feminist, and liberation theories. Though I have been a WSPA member since my internship year, I only became more active in the organization when the Good Trouble committee was formed in 2020. Through participation in that group, I have found significant meaning in connection with my psychologist colleagues as we wrestle to identify and work towards shared mission, vision, and goals. My collaborative process skills have deepened through this work as well. I enjoy working on these processes with the wider WSPA board, and helping the organization meet the needs of our members and of the practice of psychology in Washington state as a whole. I am thrilled to share co-leadership responsibilities with Jenna DelVentura and look forward to continuing to connect with WSPA!

Mandi Maycumber, LMHC, SUDP
Graduate Student Trustee
I have over 9 years of behavioral health experience in both direct care and administration. I am a licensed mental health counselor, a substance use disorder professional, and a doctoral student at Northwest University. It is an honor to serve as the WSPA graduate student trustee.
I have a background in forensic counseling and am especially interested in honing my skills in assessment as I work toward becoming a psychologist. My current research is into the pandemic and its effects on practitioners – psychologists in particular.
As long-time PNW resident, I enjoy making the most of the natural beauty around us. When not working or partaking in graduate studies, you may find me hiking, climbing, or skiing around the Cascade or Olympic Mountain ranges. My husband and son accompany me on many journeys and bring the utmost joy to my daily life.
