My name is Clare Robbe – UW Oshkosh Graduate class of 2019 with a Human Services Leadership degree with a minor in Criminal Justice. I was born and raised in Hartford, WI – now residing in Germantown, WI. I enjoy watching and playing sports, spending time with my friends and family, as well as hiking, boating, and watching Netflix. I have been the RSVP Project Director for Interfaith Caregivers since March of 2019. My role is to recruit and retain our volunteers, events, and run our social media. Please reach out if you have any questions about volunteering or community engagement.
My name is Nancy Bloom. I am a West Bend native and have two sons, a daughter-in-law, a grandson doggy, a great extended family and many dear friends that I enjoy spending time with and having fun! I have a bookkeeping/accounting background and was co-owner of Jim & Dave’s Building Supply from 1985 until 2009. After a few years of retirement I was at Habitat’s ReStore for 5 years and from there came to Interfaith. I have been on staff, part time, for 2 years and am like a “Girl Friday” doing a little bit of everything for anyone who needs it. I also volunteer at our h.e.l.p. Corner in West Bend. My association with Interfaith has been very rewarding! Life is good 🙂
My name is Sharon Borchert. I worked at Washington County Human Services. I started at Interfaith five years ago after I retired to fill some free time and to supplement my income. My hobbies include cooking, baking, gardening, and traveling.
I enjoy working at Interfaith because I’ve met a lot of great people and I feel it is a vital service in our community.
My name is Carol Adkins. I had attended a few tea fundraisers with my husband, Frank, 14 years ago and learned more about the IF organization. He had been volunteering as a driver for IF, which was located at Holy Angels apts. on the 2nd floor. There, he was given his driving assignment off of a ro-la-dex and drove his own car. The irony of lending a helping hand was not lost as he had recently had a stroke and lost the use of one hand. At IF, he found a new purpose and commitment that was fulfilling and gratifying. I watched his capabilities grow as he talked about the wonderful seniors he met and served, and the kindness they showed. I have always been an artist and volunteered in some capacity my whole life. When an opportunity arose for a position at IF, I knew this was an organization I’d love to be a part of and thus applied for. I was to help one other staff member at the time. Starting my 11th year, I have been able to share my artistic abilities as well as be a part of a community of dedicated, selfless, inspiring volunteers, as well as helping grateful seniors. The growth has been evident, not only by our office space, staff. technology, and fleet of vans, but our mission of connecting seniors with caring volunteers is still as strong. It continues to be a joy and a privilege.
My name is Beverly Krewald. I have lived in West Bend my entire life. I have been married to my husband Myron for many, many years and we have three grown children; two daughters and a son. I also have two grandpups, my own sweet dog Ryan and a cat. I am still anxiously awaiting grandchildren. I am a proud UWO graduate with a bachelor’s degree in business administration. I left the corporate rat race about 5 years ago when I was diagnosed with Breast cancer. Get checked ladies!! I can now say I am a “survivor”. I started with Interfaith Caregivers over 5 years ago as a volunteer and transitioned into my current position in May of 2016. I do all the scheduling for Interfaith and I manage the fleet of transportation vehicles along with other miscellaneous duties. Some days I wear many hats. In my spare time I like to travel, and hang out at our cabin up north where we fish, hike, and enjoy big campfires with our friends and family. I cannot say enough great things about this organization. I love what I do and I LOVE our volunteers!!!
