Board of Directors Spotlight
We would like to take a moment to recognize another member of our very valuable Board of Directors, Steve Hadzima, M.D.  

“Being able to contribute to and be a part of Frisco Family Services as they make a lasting difference in the community through the many programs that help people and families that have fallen on hard times, is very exciting to me.” As the Chief Medical Officer at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano, Steve is very passionate about helping improve the health and well-being of those in the community, while continuing the work and mission of Frisco Family Services.

An avid runner, Steve has completed 44 marathons as of this past February with more to come! Husband of Laurie and father to two daughters, Steve’s favorite quote is “To give less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.” - Steve Prefontaine, which he exemplifies in his role as President of the Board.

We treasure each and every Board member, and are so grateful for their time and talents dedicated to ensuring the success of our clients and building a caring community.
