Cynthia has a long history of working in the nonprofit field. As an AmeriCorps volunteer, she taught environmental education and built trails throughout New Hampshire. Her love of teaching and the environment led her to work with organizations in the Outerbanks of North Carolina. Later, she moved to the Bay Area, where she spent six years as Associate Director at the ALS Association. In 2007, she became a quadriplegic from a rare autoimmune disease called Transverse Myelitis. Cynthia found her way to BORP in 2009 through the cycling program, joined the board in 2012, and is now employed at BORP coordinating special grant projects and managing the fitness program. Cynthia enjoys all the BORP offerings in her free time, including cycling, archery, kayaking, and fitness classes. She also loves to explore and travel with her husband and dog.
