The Unity Health Foundation Adds New Team Members

Foundation news | Monday, April 8, 2019

The Unity Health Foundation has added three new members to their team; Shelby Cooper and Scarlett Chramer as Foundation Specialists, and Lynette Shipp as a Foundation Assistant.

Cooper has been with the Unity Health Foundation since June and is from Quitman, AR. She knew she wanted to work in healthcare communications and stay close to home and the Unity Health Foundation Specialist was the perfect opportunity.

"I enjoy connecting with Unity Health associates and being part of Searcy community events the Foundation hosts."

As one of the Foundation Specialists, Cooper works with the associate giving club and the Grateful Patient Program, as well as other fundraising opportunities throughout the community, Chramer moved to Searcy from Birmingham, AL with her husband where she worked as a Marketing Manager for the architecture firm, Live Design Group. She said she wanted to work for Unity Health because of all the things the Unity Health Foundation does for the community.

"I am excited to be part of what the foundation does for Searcy and the surrounding communities, and I am looking forward to working with local business leaders in the community," Chramer said.

As one of the Foundation Specialists, Chramer works with the outer lying communities that Unity Health serves.

Shipp is an Arkansas native and has lived in Searcy with her husband for the last 18 years. She previously served as a Medical Transcriptionist at UAMS in Little Rock.

"The [Unity Health] Foundation is such a big part of the community and gives back," Shipp said. "I wanted to be part of giving back to my community and I look forward to representing Unity Health."

Unity Health Foundation Executive Director, Cassandra Feltrop, said she is excited to have these ladies join the Unity Health Foundation team to help provide more opportunities for improving healthcare for our patients.

"They bring enthusiasm, excitement and a fresh outlook to the Foundation," Feltrop said. "Each of them brings something special and unique to our team and we are all looking forward to becoming more emerged in our communities we serve."
