Trio Joins United Way Board

Paula Warner, President of the United Way of Queen Anne’s County, is pleased to announce the addition of Neil Bourdelaise, Kate Twigg and Francis Roudiez to the Board of Directors.

Neil Bourdelaise is a Sales Manager and Top Producer for Metlife Home Loans and has been in the mortgage banking industry for 9 years. He graduated from Roanoke College in Virginia with a Bachelors of Business Administration. While he is a long time resident of Maryland, he and his wife recently bought a home in Grasonville and they love the Eastern Shore. Neil feels his positive outlook and communication skills will be a great asset to the United Way of Queen Anne’s County and his excitement to get involved in the community has already led him to serve on the United Way Golf Tournament Committee. The board is thrilled to have him and look forward to more great things from Mr. Bourdelaise!

Kate Twigg and her husband recently moved to Kent Island. With a strong belief in community service, once voted to the board, she immediately already agreed to co-Chair the “Bloom’s for United Way” event held each spring. She is also currently serving on the Board of “Maryland’s Fight Against Cancer” with United Way Vice President, Todd Wilhoit. Ms. Twigg works in Annapolis for Chesapeake Benefits, Inc. as an employee benefits broker. The United Way is happy to welcome Kate to the board!

Former United Way Chair Francis Roudiez brings with him a wealth of knowledge regarding non-profits and fundraising as he is active with the Kent Island Volunteer Fire Department and has served on the Chamber of Commerce and Lions Club of Kent Island boards. Mr. Roudiez owns Healthcare Brokerage Services and lives on Kent Island. We know that Francis will not hesitate to get involved and find his niche at the United Way and we look forward to his support!

The United Way of Queen Anne’s County is all about neighbors helping neighbors!
