Stephanie Sullivan     CEO/Executive Director

Stephanie Sullivan is a Community TV/Documentary Producer in San Diego who has volunteered for 14 years, producing over 60 TV Programs and Documentaries.  Stephanie has an incredible passion to help other volunteers that are involved with the Community of San Diego, as well as non-profit organizations and charitable events.

At age 19, Stephanie began working with her Father, an accomplished Mechanical Engineer, for the Eastman Kodak Company in San Diego. She spent 21-years with the Kodak Company working as Executive Assistant to the General Manager and later supporting several Chief Executives for the Motion Analysis Systems Division.

She has been an Executive Assistant for several other leading companies in San Diego and was formerly the Executive Assistant to Eugene “Rod” Roddenberry, Son of Legendary Science Fiction Producer, Gene Roddenberry, whose television series; “Star Trek” changed the face of television.  Additionally, she has been supporting him with The Roddenberry Dive Team (RDT) since it’s launch in 2009.  

Stephanie also pursued a modeling career from age 17, and later took acting classes. She debuted as a Police Officer on “Silk Stalkings” and went on to work as an “Extra” on The Set of Stu Segal Productions and on the set of  “Pensacola”.  

In 2002, her voiceover coach, Jill Lesly Jones, encouraged her to take a class at Del Mar Television to fulfill her dream to produce TV shows. This lead to a long and wonderful relationship with the Del Mar Television Foundation, where she went on to crew in over 40 Studio Productions produced by other Volunteer Producers, crewed as an Editorial Assistant and has also mentored several new Producers. Her passion for producing field documentaries grew into a vision to help underprivileged and special needs children learn her craft as a Volunteer Producer assisting the Community.  She began the long journey to found Community Visual Resource (CVR), the name and concept fittingly co-created by two Senior High School Students, Francesca Carter and Dillan Stockham.

What inspires Stephanie are her late Mother and Brother, who she lost far too soon. Stephanie’s Mother gave her some very special gifts…inner strength and love in her heart to help others. Her Mother worked as a Social Worker and gave her unconditional love to everyone she met. Stephanie’s journey has led her to do work so close to that of her Mother – sharing her love and knowledge with underprivileged, at-risk and special needs youth while capturing stories about the good others do.

What Stephanie believes is that you can achieve your dreams when your heart is full of love and happiness and your desire to share it with everyone you meet!
