“She is easily the best pick to replace Christy,” said RSF Association Board President Dan Comstock. “We are excited and energized to have Dominique lead us forward.”

Albrecht was hired in February 2022, coming to Rancho Santa Fe from the City of Coronado where she served as the assistant city manager. She also held positions with the County of San Diego in the Department of Housing and Community Development Services, the University of California San Diego in the Office of Operational Strategic Initiatives, and has experience as a staff member on a U.S. Senate commission.

Albrecht said she was grateful for the leadership opportunity in Rancho Santa Fe.

“I’ve really grown to love and appreciate this community,” Albrecht said.
