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 was thrilled when I was asked to serve on the RMHC Board of Directors. I was born and raised in Tucson, AZ, and this community is my home. In allowing me this opportunity, the Ronald McDonald House has given me the greatest gift…a way to serve my community, to support families in their time of need. I am so grateful to have the chance to participate in this amazing organization.

    SECRETARY

    Stephanie Kortenray

    S+S Consulting, Inc.

    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.

    TREASURER

    Amanda Robinson, CPA

    Robinson Accountancy

    I grew up hearing my dad talk about the Ronald McDonald House as a place of family, love, and hope. A place of kindness, and of community. After volunteering at RMHC during my high school years and serving the House as a young professional in the Red Shoe Society more recently, I have come to fully understand why he held the Ronald McDonald House in such high regard. Serving on the Board of Directors here doesn’t feel like service—it feels like family.
