Kimberley Quach is listed on Linked In as a vice president of a not-for-profit foundation to help at-risk kids.

She's now charged with felony child abuse and other crimes, including providing xanax, suboxone, and marijuana to teens; beginning at the first of year and into late September.

Neighbors in Carmel Valley remember a raucous party at her house about a year ago. Police were called.

 Clay Whiting described it as "Kind of late night party with high school kids; running out of the house when police showed up; cars screeching out of the neighborhood; lined up in front of our own home."

Cathedral Catholic High School sent an email to parents, advising of the arrest and investigation; asking for any information and assuring that student safety is top priority.

 Tracy Shannon told 10News, "I'm not concerned at all, my son attended the last few years at Cathedral Catholic; it's an upstanding school. one incident... It doesn't concern me."

Quach was arrested two years ago on charges that she stole from a friend she knew in high school.  She pleaded guilty to writing several bad checks.  Court documents quote her, "I unlawfully obtained personal property of another with intent to defraud.  I also took the property of another in excess of $950"

She is being held on $200,000 bail.  If convicted, she faces more than 60 years in prison.
