Board of Directors


The all-volunteer Board of Directors, is comprised of local professionals who provide a well-balanced base of knowledge. Its members, both employed and retired, include those from legal, medical, and business backgrounds.

Our directors have either a personal or professional connection to multiple sclerosis, which provides a first-hand perspective as to the needs of our community. The board’s commitment is driven by a desire to serve others as well as a shared goal to improve the quality of life for people suffering from multiple sclerosis.
