Tina joined the Mercy Community Health Foundation as Senior Development Director in December 2018. She brings over ten years of extensive foundation experience and is passionate about cultivating philanthropic support for healthcare. In her role, Tina provides leadership for fundraising strategy including annual and planned giving, capital campaigns, donor relations, special events, grant proposals, and numerous other fundraising opportunities.
“In what often seems to be a world tainted with self-centeredness, I have the privilege every day to discover ‘gems’ – those that give of themselves for a purpose of helping others through a time when they are ill, weak, scared, and most vulnerable. I can’t imagine a more rewarding way to connect people.”
Tina earned a bachelor’s of arts degree in journalism and public relations from Texas State University and a master’s of arts in education administration from University of Missouri – Kansas City. She has worked in hospital administration since 2004. Beyond her work with the Foundation, she thrives in helping others through volunteering, enjoys spending time with her three grown kids, and taking in the beauty of the Flint Hills.
