Say Hello to Our New Board Members
SOPFCA is a labor of love and survives because of the energy, focus and commitment of our all-volunteer Board. That's why we are so excited to introduce you to two fabulous women who have risen to the challenge to serve on our Board this year.
As a new board member, Kristine will be hard at work finding and securing funding opportunities from the community, local businesses, and through available grants.
She has long been involved in breast cancer research funding activities, but SOPFCA caught her eye because of the help it provides for individuals in her community.
Kristine says, "We have made great strides in treatment over the years, but we need to remember that it is patients who deserve compassion and assistance during their time of personal and medical crisis."
Kristine is a Pharm D. who works as a freelance medical writer and educator. When she isn't volunteering, she enjoys photography, scrapbooking, and spending time with her daughter, Gabrielle and her much loved dog, Dash.
Margie has been working with SOPFCA since 2015 as a member of the Grant Committee. Her background as an executive director of a different nonprofit that provided financial assistance to those with Stage IV cancer gives her unparalleled experience and insight into SOPFCA's mission.
Margie is now excited to play a larger role in SOPFCA as one of our sitting board members. She explains that her decision to become more involved stemmed from wanting "to work more closely with enthusiastic and motivated members of the board who are so passionate about raising funds to help women financially as they go through cancer treatments."
In her free time, Marjorie enjoys playing golf and riding her bike.
