As my time at Collabria Care comes to an end and I move into my next adventure—retirement! —I want to express my appreciation for the opportunity to have been a part of this incredible organization for the past 13 years. 

 Compassionate care has been the hallmark of this beloved nonprofit for forty years. It has truly been a privilege to work on behalf of such an important cause and among such dedicated people. 

My time here has been enriched by colleagues, volunteers, board members, donors, sponsors, and community partners extraordinaire, who recognize the importance of caring for the most vulnerable among us.  I extend my personal thanks to each of you for your kindness, commitment and generosity of spirit, which have made my experience at Collabria Care so very enjoyable and so rewarding.

 And I’m thrilled that Collabria Care is in the capable hands of my successors, Director of Development Operations Erika Tavakoli and Director of Philanthropy Jennifer McConnehey. I know you will enjoy working with these two great leaders, as much as I have.

 I hope you will join me in continuing to support this amazing organization and that our paths will continue to cross.

 Joanne Sutro
