Board Of  Directors

The Pick It Forward for Orphans Board of Directors is composed of Christians from a variety of churches that have volunteered to serve on the Board and are committed to improving the lives of orphans. 

Each Director is a professional and brings a variety of valuable experiences to the board.  The Directors’ professions include nurse practitioners, nursing administrators, certified public accountant, respiratory therapist, information technology, healthcare administrator, business owners, and a secondary educator.  

A special blessing for this Board is that three of the board members have children that were adopted from an orphanage or an agency thus are able to bring with them a special love and understanding of the needs for children without parents.
