The Shepherd’s Center of Oakton-Vienna has announced the appointment of Susan Garvey as its new executive director.
“We wanted to find someone who not only could fill the current position, but bring [the non-profit organization] to the next level,” said board chairman Bill Farrell. “It had to be a special person – someone with executive experience in a service organization with development skills and a kind heart. We found that person.”
Garvey has spent 30 years as an executive, fund-raiser and volunteer in the non-profit world. Some of the organizations she has worked with include Best Buddies Virginia, Inova Health System Foundation, Cornerstones and the Alzheimer’s Association.
