Northeast Kidney Foundation

Welcome back, everyone! Today, I wanted to discuss one of the topics that we’ve given a sneak peak to but haven’t quite addressed! WHO are we as the Northeast Kidney Foundation? Well, I can say that our driving motivation and commitment stems from wanting to help others.  A common thread is the personal fulfillment that is accomplished by individual involvement. Whether it be understanding the risks to ourselves or others, participating in events that broaden our informational reach or by taking the ultimate step of donation, our staff truly does make a difference.

The Northeast Kidney Foundation Summary – 

Who are we? What do we aim to do? And how will we continuously aim to serve you?

The Northeast Kidney Foundation has an experienced and talented staff who are instrumental in achieving their mission:

1.     Carol LaFleur has been the Northeast Kidney Foundation’s Chief Executive Officer for over a decade.   After seeing an ad in the newspaper and being at the turning point in her career, the rest is history.  She attributes her connections and journey of self discovery to her personal and professional growth within the Foundation and is proudly our fearless leader.

2.     Whitney Malone is our Office Manager and Events Coordinator.  Her heartfelt and determined work through Foundation events has assisted her in her personal life including enhancing her role as a mother.

3.     Melissa Stephens is our Director of Development.  Her passion for outreach and non-profit work drew her to this position and she is also an altruistic kidney donor.

4.     Sharon Johnson is the Regional Director of the Rochester/Syracuse area.  Her willingness to help others and especially working with children in the form of support groups her role as a puppeteer and an altruistic kidney donor has encouraged her to fulfill the Foundation’s mission. 

5.     Jessica Spiak is our Social Media and Marketing Director.  She has been touched by the Foundation and worked her way from intern to Marketing Director and has found pleasure in the interactions and growth that she has experienced with outreach. She has been touched by the Foundation’s mission as her father also experiences chronic kidney disease.

6.     I am Douglas Brown, your host and the Special Projects Coordinator for the Foundation and you all know my story.

The staff as a whole is dedicated to strengthening connections with families who are affected and professional who are leaders in their field in order to address the treatment and prevention of kidney disease.
