Stephanie Mastroianni, Executive Director
Stephanie Mastroianni, Executive Director since 2002, has shaped UBCF into the wonderful organization that it is today due in large part to her personal experience with breast cancer. Her mother passed away from the disease at the age of 42. Each of UBCF’s seven programs have evolved from this personal experience. In 2005, under Ms. Mastroianni’s leadership, UBCF expanded to reach the national community.
Beth Reichart, Director of Operations
Beth joined UBCF in 2005 as Director of Operations. She works from the Foundation’s satellite office in Maryland, and travels extensively promoting the work of UBCF. Under her guidance, programs like the annual mattress donation events have grown in scope and size.
Lauren Brohm, Executive Assistant and Office Manager
Lauren began working at United Breast Cancer Foundation in late 2016. She brings over 15 years of managerial experience to help organize and streamline the processes of the UBCF offices. Her amazing customer service skills and desire to give back to the community are the qualities that UBCF looks for in a successful team member.
Katie Ferguson, Development Manager
Also a new team member in late 2016, Katie has worked in the nonprofit sector for nearly five years. She brings a diverse background with experience in writing, graphic design, event managements, and fundraising. Her goals for UBCF include building awareness of UBCF programming and raising funds to help support patients and survivors of breast cancer.
Marta Frejek, Gift-in-Kind Manager
Marta has been working at UBCF since mid-2016, taking the reigns of the Gift-in-Kind program to make free household items available to patients and survivors. She has reached out to local support groups to invite women to the UBCF Donation Center, and began holding events to bring the items directly to the women in need.
Luciana Malyango, Programs Manager
Lulu joins the UBCF team from the Talent Development Program. Her goals include improving the grant application process because watching her aunt struggle with breast cancer she wished for programs, like the ones at UBCF, to help reduce the stress that cancer brings. Lulu is currently a senior at Stony Brook University and is studying Health Science. She looks forward to becoming a Physical Therapist.
Donation Center Staff
UBCF’s Donation Center is supported by a team of three women: Magda Siuenza, Maricelda Cruz and Rosa Siguenza. The Donation Center Team assists breast cancer patients and survivors as they select personal care and household items from our Gift-in-Kind Program. Magda, Maricelda and Rosa are the very definition of “hands-on” employees. They are responsible for picking up donations each week from our retail partners, managing inventory of donation items and most importantly, client care. All three agree that working with UBCF clients and staff makes the work very special.
