Meusborn-Marsh Appointed New Superintendent at Larch Corrections Center
OLYMPIA – The Department of Corrections today announced that Stefani Meusborn-Marsh has accepted an appointment to be the new superintendent of Larch Corrections Center, a minimum-security work camp located northeast of Vancouver. Meusborn-Marsh, who has worked in both prisons and community corrections since she joined the agency in 1984, is currently the regional administrator for community corrections in Eastern Washington. Her appointment takes effect Oct. 1.
She started her career at Larch, first as a secretary and then a classification counselor. She later became a community corrections officer and advanced up the chain of command to field administrator for community corrections operations in Southwest Washington.
“Stefani’s leadership experience in both prisons and community corrections made her the ideal candidate for this position,” said Dan Pacholke, Assistant Secretary of the Prisons Division. “That combination is particularly helpful at work camp that houses offenders who will return to their communities soon.”
Meusborn-Marsh, who has lived in Vancouver while she has served as a regional administrator in Olympia, said she is looking forward to returning to Larch.
“This is a great opportunity to return to a place that means so much to me,” she said. “Larch has a long tradition of helping offenders transition back to communities across the state. I look forward to building on that success.”
Larch, which houses about 480 offenders in two living units, provides resources to the local communities, including offender fire crews that help fight wildfires across the state.
