The organization has a lot of moving parts and the person who makes sure it all runs smoothly is our Executive Director, Maureen Korzik. She comes to us with a wealth of nonprofit leadership experience, having worked with many organizations over the course of her career. She has been with us since November 2016 when our previous executive director, Joan Apple Lemoine, retired.
As Executive Director of WACHH, Maureen is responsible for the overall administration of the organization, under the direction of the President and Board of Directors. She facilitates the affairs of the council (speaker programs, discussion groups and outreach) and membership at large.
Maureen is a graduate of Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI with a Bachelors in Biology. She has worked for Rhone-Poulenc Rorer Pharmaceuticals in sales and marketing, Matthews Free Health Clinic as Executive Director and most recently served as Executive Director for Second Helpings, a local non-profit organization. Maureen hails from New Jersey, but moved to Charlotte, NC in 1992 where she and her husband, Tom, worked and raised their two sons. She and her family frequently visited the island and moved here permanently in January 2013.
Maureen enjoys working for such a well-respected organization and continuing the mission of keeping members abreast of developments in international affairs.
