Board of Directors

Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) helps families with sick kids by giving them the gift of time, when time is at its most precious.
A family far from home with a hospitalized child has many things to worry about. We believe that where they’ll stay and how they’ll afford it should not be among them.

    I started as a crew person at McDonald's in 1989 and I have been a proud McDonald's franchisee since 2004. We love our Tucson community and we love our Wildcats.
    My favorite part about the house is the volunteers and supporting them in any way possible. The compassion, dedication and love that the volunteers bring to the house is contagious and overwhelming.

    I believe that the Ronald McDonald House provides invaluable services to those in need at their greatest time of need. When you have a sick child you need as much help as possible so that you can focus all of your energy on them and RMH does so many things to allow families to do that. My participation with RMH is a way for me to help in that mission and it is my honor to be a part of the House.

    I consider myself unbelievably fortunate that, coming from a family with 5 kids, that none of us ever experienced a serious illness would have required traveling away from home for treatment. Family is so important and the thought that parents may not be able to be near their kids when they are seriously ill is heartbreaking. Knowing that RMHC can be there to provide a “home away from home” to these families, and provide a little bit of comfort and normalcy during their ordeal, makes me proud to be a board Member.

    It is important to me that families dealing with a health crisis have the ability to focus on family and that the other details of daily life are secondary. RMHC takes care of those details in a loving and caring manner. This is accomplished without financial burden to the families. This is a very important mission.

    Nextrio, LLC

    My engagement with the Ronald McDonald House is an extension of our company mission. Nextrio operates as a family, deeply connected to each other, our clients and our community. We don’t just “go to work” and “do our jobs.” Everything we do in business supports a much larger personal purpose and reward. In much the same way, the Ronald McDonald House is not just “a place to stay.” Nextrio is proud to contribute to so many of the extra details and benefits that make this House a Home for families in need. Doing so strengths our own families!
