The QVF Team

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 beautifully.

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.


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 graphics designer.

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
