Doris may not have discovered the fountain of youth, but she’s certainly mastered the secret to remaining youthful, vital, and vibrant even as a retired octogenarian: she surrounds herself with people and places she loves, pursues lifelong learning, immerses herself in a worthwhile cause, and develops and nurtures cross-generational relationships.
Doris is a graduate of Lebanon Valley College and a chemist by trade. She is a retiree with 30+ years in the technical and scientific professions, first in the Research & Development Division of the former AMP, Inc., and then in government in the PA Department of Environmental Resources in the Bureau of Radiation Protection. After working in both the industry and government segments of the work force, Doris hung up her white lab coat and turned her energies to the nonprofit world. And UCP has been the principal beneficiary ever since. For the past 24 years, Doris has put her passion for people, her razor-sharp mind, and her huge heart to good use, to better the community around her.
In recognition of her years of service to the community in general and UCP in particular, Doris was awarded the Association of Fundraising Professionals Spirit of Philanthropy Award in 2006. She was also a recipient of the Ethel Hausman Volunteer Award in 2001.
