At Quinolone Vigilance Foundation, we all work very hard, mostly behind the scenes, and we work well as a team.
We work nights, weekends, and holidays and we receive no compensation
for what we do. We do this because we are passionate about this and in
everything we do, we keep it forefront in our minds that we are your
voice. We do not take that responsibility lightly.
With that said, I would like to take a few minutes to acknowledge and thank everyone who works so hard:
Matt Arnold, Vice President: My right hand man and a brave soul who
works with all women. LOL. One of the nicest, most levelheaded guys I
know and a constant voice of reason. It is an honor to serve on the
Board with him.
Donna Schutz, Assistant Director: My right hand
woman. Levelheaded and a problem solver, Donna is incredibly dedicated
and hardworking, often going above and beyond. Not much would get done
around here without her. Donna rose quickly through the ranks because of
her dedication and hard work.
Leslie Day, Secretary: Leslie,
without hesitation, is there for everyone. Her dedication and
organizational skills make her a great fit for this organization.
Christina Manthos-Sorrell, Treasurer: Christina has been on the Board
of Directors the longest. She expertly handles our finances, writes
budgets, makes sure we stay within those budgets, reports to the IRS,
assists in the Grant Application process, and participates in our
research calls. This is a high stress position and she handles it
Dr. Deanna Minkler, General Board Member: Deanna
always finds time out of her busy schedule to help us out. We have to
make tough decisions sometimes and Deanna carefully weighs these
decisions in helping guide QVF.
Michelle Fewer, Fundraising
Director: Michelle brings a lot of expertise and professionalism to her
position. Fundraising is not easy for a non-profit. Her creativity and
experience is a great asset to this organization.
NON BOARD VOLUNTEER STAFF--
Lori Boz, RN, Consultant: Lori is a loyal staff member and her experience as a Registered Nurse helps guide the foundation.
Victoria Chiovare, Assistant Fundraising Director: Victoria works
closely with Michelle Fewer, Donna Schutz and I on fundraisers. She
brings a wealth of fundraising experience to her position. In addition
to fundraising duties, Victoria often steps up to help me and Donna
Schutz in day-to-day operations. She also happens to be our resident
Jenny Frank, Public Relations Director:
Jenny writes press releases, serves as a spokesperson, and as a liaison
between QVF and the media. She also serves as an editor for materials
written by QVF.
We have many Ambassadors all over the nation
and around the world. Too many to list here but they are listed on our
website. They all do a fantastic job representing QVF in their home
state and countries. They are just as important in the fabric of QVF as
our board members and volunteer staff. We are very proud of the work
they do on behalf of QVF in their communities.
We all make a
great team and I speak for all of us when I say that it is an honor to
serve the community. Thank you for supporting us and helping us achieve
the success that we have.
-Rachel Brummert, President/Executive Director
