JENNIFER BUSH-LAWSON FOUNDATION EXPANDS ITS BOARD
Kelly Garrity and Elizabeth Ingram join the board of directors
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ARLINGTON, VA, FEBRUARY 28, 2019 – The Jennifer Bush-Lawson Foundation (JB-LF) announces that Kelly Garrity and Elizabeth Ingram have joined its board of directors, effective February 27, 2019. Their addition is part of a planned expansion of JB-LF’s board, and the foundation expects to add an additional board member later this year.
Garrity is the Senior Director of Membership Services and Development at the National Health Council, where she has worked since 2008. She is also a founding member, fundraising chair and legislative co-chair of the Virginia chapter of the Star Legacy Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to reducing pregnancy loss and neonatal death and improving care for families who experience such tragedies.
“I’m thrilled to be able to combine my nonprofit professional experience and personal experience with a high-risk pregnancy to help JB-LF achieve its mission,” says Kelly Garrity.
Ingram, a preschool teacher at Westover Baptist, has volunteered with JB-LF since its launch, dedicating her time to serve as a co-chair and the race director of the annual 5K & Family Fun Day. This new role will allow her to become even more involved in JB-LF’s activities in the community.
“The Jennifer Bush-Lawson Foundation is in an exciting phase of growth, with a new event series on maternal and infant health as well as a newly launched Prize for Prenatal Innovation. The expertise that our new board members bring will help us achieve our plans for growth so that we can improve the lives of even more economically vulnerable moms and babies,” said Neal Lawson, founder and chair of JB-LF.
