KKOOM is proud to announce that Christina (Tina) Nadeau Mohr of East Hampton, Connecticut has joined the Board of Directors. She was unanimously elected to serve a one-year term beginning in October 2015. Tina has been a long-time KKOOM supporter, and this past summer, she and her husband, Mike, met KKOOM college student, JD Kim in Boston. You can read more about that experience here.
Tina explains her interest in joining the KKOOM Board in more detail,
My daughter is adopted from South Korea and therefore my desire to help these children is a very personal commitment for me. During the adoption process, I learned stories of many children who were unable to be adopted for various reasons and are raised in orphanages. It breaks my heart that these children are not given the same opportunities that my daughter will have. Although the orphanage staff do the very best to care for and raise these children, I believe there are additional ways I could help improve their lives even more.
Aimee Jachym, KKOOM Co-founder and President, says, “We’re thrilled that Tina has joined our Board, and we are looking forward to the unique perspective Tina brings as an adoptive parent. Her background in finance and strong analytical skills will also be huge assets to our organization.”
Tina is a legislative analyst for the Connecticut General Assembly, and she is also licensed to practice law in Connecticut. In her free time, she enjoys watching Korean dramas and studying the Korean language. Other hobbies include camping and kayaking with her family.
