Breast Cancer Support Services announces its new executive director, Tonya Gentry.
Ms. Gentry has over 20 years of experience in marketing and business development in the Chattanooga area, as well as a long history of volunteering.
Ms. Gentry sought out an opportunity to assist other breast cancer survivors about a year after her own breast cancer diagnosis. She joined the BCSS board of directors in April 2012 and quickly became a very active board member. She chaired the successful BRA-VO! fashion show held in April and she assisted in coordinating the recent Moving On workshop at UTC.
On July 1, she took over the day to day operations of the BCSS office on McCallie Avenue; assisting Emergency Fund patients, coordinating support groups and therapy group, and overseeing all of the free events for breast cancer survivors in the 19-county service area.
