Haley Augustson, Secretary
Hi y’all! My husband (a C-5 maintainer) and I moved here from Delaware summer 2022. Since then, the TSC has given me opportunities to meet some wonderful people, find my footing in California, and do some really fun things. I’m involved in many of our mini-clubs & delighted to serve as TSC Secretary.
Victoria Aquin, Treasurer
Victoria is a retired educator who holds a Master’s degree in Public Administration and two undergraduate degrees, one in Business and another in Education. She has been on Spouse Club Boards since becoming a military spouse and loves the community and togetherness that TSC provides. One of Victoria’s constant philosophies is that the word “challenge” can be interchanged with “opportunity”.
Travis Community Thrift Shop Management
Avon Sison, TCTS Manager
California has been home for my family and I for the last 12 years. My background is actually in the medical field. I started volunteering at the thrift shop while also working full time for UC Davis; I was pregnant then with my youngest and he is now 2 years old. If I told you that I saw my future self running a thrift store on base, I would be lying. Life definitely lead me in a different direction and I am excited to be a part of this exciting adventure with the TCTS.
