About 31 years ago, Christie Holderegger began her life’s work in developing the foundation that would give the community the opportunity to also change lives. She quickly became an organizational leader serving as Chief Development and Communications Officer at Volunteers of America. By leveraging creative storytelling, strategic partnerships and brand recognition she was able to focus the organization on the value of the people it serves. As Holderegger steps into this leadership position she remarks, “It is important to bring the community into this work and share the joy of service. Our 350+ employees live and breathe this mission of reaching and uplifting those who are isolated, alone and frightened. What a gift it is to give our community that same opportunity. To be able to go home every day and know that someone is in a better place than yesterday and on a path to independence is truly priceless. This is what kept me going over the years. I am humbled to take over the reins and support this critical mission.” Read more about Christie.
