My name is Brenda Cherpitel, and I have the great pleasure of serving as the Development Director for the Bert Nash Center. I work closely with members of our Endowment Board as well as our wonderful Bert Nash Ambassadors and supporters. The Development Team is charged with implementing a strategic plan to raise financial support that will help sustain and expand Bert Nash programs and services, which are so vital to the residents of our community.
I spent most my professional career in for-profit marketing and business development working more than 20 years for Hallmark Cards, Inc., then in senior management for two smaller gift companies. Following my heart to the non-profit world, I served for 11 years as Director of Development for the American Academy of Family Physicians Foundation. I joined the Bert Nash team in February 2019, and I am so proud to be part of a caring and compassionate organization, which makes a difference in the lives of so many people.
On the personal front, I love spending time with my husband, two grown children, daughter-in-law, and adorable 2-year old granddaughter. I also enjoy walking, traveling, hanging out with friends, and volunteering my time in service to others.
