    I was hired in 2008 as the House Manager and now serve as the Director of Operations. My primary focus is to provide support and comfort to the wonderful families and children who stay with us. I consider it a privilege to be able to take care of them and to offer whatever help I can as they go through these stressful situations. Giving families a “Home away from home” when they need it is the most satisfying aspect of what I do.

    As the Program Manager, I’m provided the distinct advantage of working, day after day, with the countless volunteers who generously lend their time, their expertise and their heart to the Ronald McDonald House and the Ronald McDonald Family Room. Since I started in 2009, I’ve been consistently amazed by the fortitude and passion that our volunteers possess and strive every day to lead by their example.

    I joined the RMHC in 2013 and quickly understood just how important the House is for our families. Every day I am amazed by the generosity and spirit of our volunteers, donors, sponsors, and the entire Southern Arizona community all in support of our guests. At the heart of RMHC is family, and that's what has been built here by those same people over the last 40+ years.

    Hola! In 2016, I was blessed to join the RMHC as the Accounting Manager. Ever since, my goal has been to keep this home in compliance and protect its finances so this house can continue to serve families for many years to come. I take care of all the accounting, HR and notary needs but the best part of my job is when we get Spanish only speaking families. Being bilingual allows me to step outside of my accounting world and assist them to help make their stay much easier and more welcoming. I’m honored to able to work with such an amazing staff, volunteers and the RMHC organization.

    As Development Assistant, I am given the unique opportunity to work with every department at RMHC. From providing administrative support to the staff and helping our wonderful volunteers at the front desk, to keeping in touch with local schools who participate in the Pop Tab recycling program, I am lucky to be involved in so many aspects of what we do, and I’m constantly amazed at all the different ways our local Southern Arizona communities pull together to help our families. I’m honored to be a part of such an amazing organization.

    Allan Bonhoff

    I have had the privilege of assisting some of the bravest children and young adults, and their supportive families during a difficult and stressful time in their lives. I have seen how Ronald McDonald House Charities has allowed these families to focus on healing while having their housing, food, and transportation needs cared for without cost to them. I am also impressed how the community in Southern Arizona has come together to provide the financial support to permit all of this to happen. It is truly an amazing experience.

    I really value the interactions with the families I have during my weekends at the Ronald McDonald House. In addition to providing administrative support to some of their doctors at my day job, my time with them at the House feels like a full circle moment.
    One of the things I appreciate most about the Ronald McDonald House is that all families are recognized and treated with the same loving care.

Getting the opportunity to provide such support and care is a great privilege. I feel very blessed to be working with such an amazing organization.
