Foothills Caring Corps

The Foothills Caring Corps has three newly elected board members: Cynthia Driskell, Susie Dymoke and Ron Fink. 

“I am thrilled and deeply grateful to welcome these three talented individuals,” said Robin Cochran, executive director. 

“Their diverse backgrounds and skills will provide extraordinary expertise that will further our collective works of service to the Foothills Caring Corps Neighbors and community. Their addition to the board of directors will be key in implementing the strategic plan and will help in shaping and carrying out our mission in the years ahead as the needs of our neighbors grow and change.”

Driskell, owner and physical therapist at Carefree Physical Therapy, has been involved in the community for almost 40 years. 

“I am very pleased to join the many talented and dedicated board members, staff and volunteers who have built the FCC into a valuable community organization,” Driskell said. 

“With a strong background in geriatric health care services, it is a good fit for me to participate in the continued growth of quality programs with the FCC.”

Carefree resident Dymoke is a community advocate and longtime Foothills Caring Corps volunteer. Dymoke is also involved in the Desert Foothills Land Trust, Carefree Cave Creek Chamber of Commerce and Hospice of the Valley.  

“I long to bring my skills to further help Caring Corps flourish for the good of the community as a whole, and for our dear neighbors in particular,” Dymoke said. 

Also joining the board is Fink, who has been a volunteer for the Foothills Caring Corps for more than three years. Fink has volunteered as a van driver for the organization and as a handyman. Fink has been involved with many of FCC fundraisers, gatherings and its newsletters. 

“I believe I have a good understanding of how the organization helps our neighbors and would like to help us move forward by looking at traditional ways of doing things and also look at fresh new ideas,” Fink said.

Fink, Dymoke and Driskell will join Dr. Paul Dale, June Reilly, Pastor Mike Johnson, Sabina Schwan, Beverly Miller-Dastgir, Barbara Giovan, Dr. Leslie Seldin, Suzanne Wagner and Madison Wetter. 

The mission of the Foothills Caring Corps is to help older adults and individuals with disabling conditions who reside in the Northeast Valley-Foothills Community to remain living independently in their homes for as long as possible.
