Darlynne Overbaugh, Director of Children’s and Youth Ministries

Hello! I am thrilled  to be your Director of Children’s and Youth Ministries. I’ve lived in the Tompkins County area since I graduated from Wells College in 2001. Some of my favorite early career memories included being an Arts and Crafts Specialist for the YMCA of Greater Rochester; teaching puppetry, improvisation and playwriting; and handcrafting artisan fair trade chocolates with my own business, Life’s So Sweet Chocolates. Throughout my life I’ve collected comic books, enjoyed science fiction and fantasy and planned a wide variety of events. My experiences with Ithacon and Wizarding Weekend inspired me to complete a Master’s Degree from Falmouth University in Creative Event Management. For the last year and a half I’ve been traveling the world delivering Stova event technology solutions for a wide range of small and large scale events. I am very happy to return home to my husband (Bill), daughter (Penelope, 12), Puli dog (Pepper) and three legged cat (Chip) in Trumansburg and excited to get to know everyone in FCCI community!Feel free to reach out to me at darlynneoverbaugh@fccithaca.org and we’ll make a time to connect in person!
