TBBCF elects 2022 Executive Committee Officers
On April 12, 2022, the Board of Directors of the Terri Brodeur Breast Cancer Foundation elected new officers to its 15-member board.
Patti Burmahl was re-elected the TBBCF’s Executive Committee President at the foundation’s April board meeting. Burmahl has been a dedicated foundation volunteer since 2006. She has enjoyed a successful business career as a human resource professional. Currently she is the Director of Administrative Services for the Town of Stonington, responsible for leadership of Human Resources, Information Technology and Health and Safety.
Burmahl’s inspiration to involve herself with TBBCF was Norma Logan. Burmahl is an original Logan’s Hero earning that distinction as a member of Logan’s 2005 3-Day walk team.
Her leadership roles over the years include serving as Executive Committee Vice-President and Secretary and for several years volunteering as a human resources consultant to the Board of Directors. She has also served as a member of the Walk Leadership Team.
Pamela Morris Watt, TBBCF’s newly elected Executive Committee Vice President is a 14-year breast cancer survivor, marathoner, volunteer, and patient advocate. She is employed as the Chief Clerk of the Court, Mohegan Tribal Court. She became a foundation board director in 2015.
In 2008, Morris Watt was diagnosed with two types of breast cancer. That year a group of her friends formed a walk team, Pam’s Pink Posse, and walked the full marathon. Watt joined the team in 2009 and has walked full or half marathons for the past 13 years. She was awarded the TBBCF 27th Mile Club Award in 2017. Additionally, she has been a year-round volunteer since 2010 holding the position of TBBCF’s Matching Gift Administrator.
Stacey Gualtieri, a CPA and partner at Doherty, Beals & Banks in New London, was again re-elected Executive Committee Treasurer. She is the founding Treasurer of TBBCF. Gualtieri also serves as foundation grants administrator and is a member of the Walk Leadership Team.
In addition to serving as treasurer, Gualtieri and her family have walked in marathons, volunteered at pit stops and put out signs to support other walkers. Gualtieri’s daughter, Gabby Gualtieri, is a grants administrator for the scientific advisory board, and Gualtieri’s firm Doherty Beals & Banks provides in-kind business services including office space.
Sandy Maniscalco, TBBCF co-founder, is the newly elected Executive Committee Secretary. Maniscalco, an 18-year Pfizer retiree has been a key supporter of TBBCF since the beginning. She and Norma Logan were good friends and co-workers at Pfizer, and when Logan asked her to help set up her new foundation, Maniscalco did not hesitate.
Maniscalco was the first Board Vice President and over the years has been board president, executive director, development and outreach director, website content manager and editor of the TBBCF newsletter. She also has walked the marathon, or parts of it, every year. She has amassed a large following of volunteers who are as dedicated to her as they are to the cause.
