Her experience and passion for leading non-profit organizations is an invaluable asset that will be felt throughout the community,” said Luke Ross, DCF Board Chair. “We look forward to embarking on an exciting new chapter for DCF. “Our campuses and the space that we provide to our partners is now more imperative than ever.
