Our Office Support
Lori Dennehy has worked for Rooms of Hope since 2015, but got her start with us a year earlier as one of our volunteers. She was drawn to our mission after watching one of her own children struggle with a life threatening condition for years and knowing one of our room recipients. Her personal experience along with her business background and a desire to give back and help other children made her a wonderful addition to our organization. Lori currently works with the Executive Director as a Rooms of Hope Administrative Coordinator helping with day-to-day operations of our organization.
Nancy Andre joined the Rooms of Hope team after her family was the recipient of a dream room makeover. Her son was diagnosed with brain cancer, and Rooms of Hope created a sports-themed space for him to enjoy while he went through many months of treatment. Nancy’s daughters also received mini-makeovers and felt very special receiving such wonderful, happy spaces. Her son is now cancer-free and continues to enjoy his dream space! Knowing how Rooms of Hope gave such joy to her family, Nancy was excited to join the Rooms of Hope team to help spread joy to other families when they most need it. Nancy keeps our van, storage space, and volunteer database organized and up-to-date and also keeps our supporters informed through social media. Nancy lives in Pleasanton with her husband, son, and two daughters.
Terri was born in Portugal (Azores) and grew up in Montreal, Quebec (Canada). Terri and her husband John have lived in the Bay Area since 2002 after spending several years living and working overseas. Terri and her family live in San Ramon; her son studies at San Diego State University and her daughter attends Molloy College/CAP21 in New York.
Terri has helped with development and maintenance of the ROH website since 2014 and has been a part of multiple room makeovers and fundraisers. Terri first heard of this wonderful organization through her neighbor Breezy who received a room maker when she was in elementary school. Breezy’s strength and determination has been an inspiration for us and our community.
