Meet the Rescate Board of Directors

The Rescate Board is comprised of full and part time residents of San Carlos. Each board member is a volunteer and brings unique strength and talent to the table.  Many have backgrounds in the medical field and others have strong business backgrounds.  Together, the harmonious board is talented, focused and motivated and has made great strides in creating a solid business foundation in support of the Rescate operation.  Our current board members are:
