The Board of Directors




Deb Fay


"I believe we should all smile more. I feel blessed to be retired so I can spend more time with our granddaughters, work in the yard, sew, read, and hike - while smiling."



Janine Moore


"I believe that we all have something to contribute and we should stop keeping score. I believe in family and friends and making my corner of the world just a little better. And I believe that sharing a meal solves a lot of problems."



Cora Newcomb

Communications Director

"I believe in the immense power of prayer, kindness, and honesty. I believe in the magic of a smile and man's innate ability to live a happy, fulfilling life. Most of all, I believe in God Almighty, the love of family, the grace of wisdom, and our individual gifts to touch the lives of others."



Cindy Zwickel


"I believe in the power of prayer and the strength of family. Through prayer, questions have been answered, clouds have melted away, and mercy has been received. My family inspires me to share God's love and to strive to be all that He calls me to be."



Kim Hoover


"I believe in a world where you can be anything. Be kind."



Lisa Link


"I believe that each of us should use whatever gifts we have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. Giving back to the community is not only my passion but my purpose. When I am not volunteering, I run my own photography business and enjoy cheering on the Preds, playing tennis, floating on the lake and working in my garden."

Lynne Warne


"I believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and that everything happens for a reason. I value my faith, health, and the strong relationships I've built with family and friends. I am passionate about hiking, traveling and exploring the world God created."



Claudia Weber


"I believe in the ability to work as a team with others for a good cause. As a social worker for 25 years and an early childhood specialist for a dozen years I have learned much from families and colleagues. And I believe in my own family and faith."

Lisa O'Neill-Sullivan

Second VP/Programs

"I believe that I am stronger when I start my day with prayer and gratitude. I believe that the members of NCBWL are stronger by our common faith in God, our relationships, and a shared desire to serve."



Faye Knochenmus


"I believe in: First is my God. Second is my country. I am a veteran serving both in the US Air Force and the US Army. Veterans are the backbone of this country. Family is important to me. My husband and children are the reason I have been able to continue to pursue my passion of serving others."

Spiritual Life

"I believe everyone can live out their faith no matter what career they choose. I believe my family and friends are gifts from God and I try to cherish the moments with them. I believe we learn more in moments and travels than we do from only books. I believe that our faith is a journey that I enjoy walking that journey with others."

Veronica Moreland

Development/Pearls of Wisdom Co-Chair

I believe that the Lord is always compassionate and loving so we must always trust, in the darkest of times, that He will never leave us. I value the time I get to spend with my little girls - they are growing up too quickly! I am passionate about food and the arts, conserving the environment, and teaching the next generation the values of kindness, critical thinking and hard work.

Patricia Vance

Development/Pearls of Wisdom Co-Chair

"I believe that everyone should be treated with kindness and respect just as Jesus would do. I know that Jesus has us in the palm of his hand when we need His assistance the most, He walks beside us when we need a friend, He laughs with us when we need to laugh, and loves us unconditionally."
