Esperança Announces New Board Members

Esperança is pleased to announce Chelsea Sage Durkin and Paula Eick have joined the organization’s board of directors.

Chelsea Sage Durkin is an attorney at Osborn Maledon, P.A. As a litigation associate, her practice focuses on general commercial litigation, criminal defense and attorney regulation. She’s a Phoenix native and has diverse connections in the community. She is a board member for Angels on Patrol and volunteers with Tumbleweed Center for Youth Development.

“We’re thrilled to have Chelsea on our board,” said Tom Egan, president and CEO of Esperanca. “She’s a third generation supporter of Esperança. Her grandmother and parents have been supporters for at least 20 years. It’s really neat to have families share the tradition of community giving with their children and grandchildren. Chelsea is very familiar with our mission.”

Paula Eick is safety director/risk manager at Adolfson & Peterson Construction. She’s been there for the past five years and is responsible for health, safety and environmental compliance on jobsites in Arizona, California, Washington and Oklahoma.

“The mission of Esperança is appealing to me in that it addresses the most basic needs people often take for granted: clean water, access to health care including basic knowledge about nutrition and disease, and safe and clean living quarters. I am hopeful that my talents can help make a difference in the lives of others,” said Eick.
