Board Members

Ellen Ghiringhelli, President
Ellen Ghiringhelli is a Construction Solutions Specialist with Waste Management, specializing in LEED projects and asset recovery. She was asked to join the BOD because she was incessant with her ideas and thinks everyone is entitled to her opinion. We have assigned her the role of president to finally shut her up and hope she learns a lesson: that this is hard work.


Judy Loope, Board Member
Judy Loope used internet wildlife cams in her classroom to learn and teach about animals and the issues they face today. After retiring from teaching, she wanted to help so began taking wildlife rehabilitation classes and volunteering at Southwest VA Wildlife Center of Roanoke. She feels every day working with the animals is rewarding, challenging and at times, heart breaking.
