A Strategic Partner to RVNAhealth
Over the years, Sharon has worked with RVNAhealth to remain focused on strategy and impact every step of the way and, most recently, was actively engaged in our agency rebrand to RVNAhealth, as well as facilitating our next five year plan. She is an active member of our Development Committee, dedicated supporter of our Annual Fund, and loyal sponsor of our annual Spring Breakfast fundraising event. Our mission to provide exceptional healthcare at every age and stage of life truly resonates with her and she is committed to help bring this mission to the many people and communities we serve.
When asked what Sharon loves best about supporting the annual RVNAhealth Spring Breakfast, she said, “I love hearing a good story and I love the powerful stories which patients and family members share each year at the Spring Breakfast. Stories draw us in. We relate to them. When I hear the impact that RVNAhealth has had on an individual and their family, the remarkable care provided by a nurse, therapist or aide, it just gets me every time. My husband was diagnosed with ALS many years ago and I will never forget the care and support the aides, therapists and nurses provided. Because of them, we can be the wives, daughters, husbands and sons our families need.”
Sharon is a BoardSource Certified Governance Trainer and a sought-after presenter, conducting workshops and seminars at the national, regional and local level and has published numerous articles on governance, boards, fundraising and strategy. She is a member of RVNAhealth’s Governor Society, a group of loyal business donors recognized for their annual contributions of $1,000 or more. Thank you, Sharon, for your consult, support and belief in us!
