It’s time to meet another member of our fabulous team at A Charlie Girl Foundation…..meet Melissa!
My name is Melissa Johnson and I have gotten to know Kelly over the past couple of years through work at United Hospital. She started sharing Charlie’s story with me and I made the decision to join the Charlie Girl Foundation to help other children (and their families) born with Congenital Heart Defects. In October 2016, a friend of mine had a baby boy who was diagnosed with Critical Aortic Stenosis, a severe narrowing of the left aortic valve, shortly after he was born. He was discharged home after 55 days in the hospital, after multiple surgeries and was able to be home for Christmas. You can follow Henry’s story on his Caring Bridge website (https://www.caringbridge.org/visit/henryjohnson2). I am a Registered Nurse by background and started a new position as the Manager of Care Management at United Hospital last year. In my freetime, I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my nephew and niece, and going for a run.
Keep watching for additional bio’s on our board members as well as for news about more of our partnerships.
Thanks for following,
