Board Member Spotlight: Stephanie Gilliard

Can you tell me a little about your position on the board and what your position is responsible for?
I’m presently serving as President of the Board. I work closely with the Executive Director to provide oversight of the organization. I also liaise with the community and potential donors as often as I can to tell them about the great work that we do.
Why did you become involved in the organization, and what has your involvement looked like over time?
I was ready to give back to the community in a more meaningful and consistent way. Board service was the best way to accomplish both objectives. Serving on the Board allowed me to utilize my 15+ years of legal experience to help oversee the organization so that CancerLINC could continue to provide crucial services to cancer patients at a time when they need it the most.
