Lisa Hart, Director of Development
All of you who have been a part of The Life Raft Group for the past two years have had the pleasure of getting to know Christine Schaumburg, our Development Director. Christine came to us from her position as the mayor of Clinton, New Jersey. Christine recently left us for a new opportunity as the Executive Director of a shelter that provides women who are victims of domestic abuse support. We wish her the best of luck as she moves forward to do such important work.
