Roxanne Young – Executive Director
Roxanne began her career working as a Psychiatric Nurse in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. After her move to the United States, she transitioned from working on the nursing floor to hospital administration. She loves the process of continuous quality improvement and business management and was able to gain a wealth of experience while working in progressive executive leadership positions within the for-profit healthcare systems.
After her two children were born, Roxanne focused on her family. Returning to work in the non-profit world, she worked at the Director and Vice President levels at two of the largest non-profits in the Florida. As her children grew, she served in a Women’s Ministry in Texas as the Executive Director. Roxanne is thrilled to be a part of the mission of Cherish Our Children International and takes pleasure in making a positive impact for some of the world’s most vulnerable children.
