President Dana Engelhardt

I am a retired nurse from the SF Bay Area. My husband and I moved to Grants Pass in 2019 and are enjoying retirement. I enjoy cooking, playing the piano, and working to improve the lives of the under served in the community and globally.


Rec. Sec. Sandy Lowman

Manager at Tom Randall's State Farm agency, and is involved in her son's school activities.


V. P. Marian Stevens

Retired TV CEO from the Los Angeles area.



Corr. Sec. Denise Michele

Retired Chiropractor

I became a Soroptimist member in 1995 in Gendale, CA.  I have contributed to the clubs operations by being Corr. Secretary, Treasurer, Director, Website manager.  The best aspect has been being involved with fund-raising projects over the years and working with outstanding women.


Tres. Gwen Luhring

I joined Soroptimist River Valley in March 2000 as a Charter member. My previous work history as a Finance Manager for a major telecommunications company didn’t leave much time for community involvement. I moved to Grants Pass in 1998 and immediately started looking for opportunities to serve.  Helping women and girls live their best lives is a passion of mine.


Director Kellie Barton

I have been a Soroptimist member for 13 years.  I joined originally to be a good role model for my girls. As a member I have gained leadership skills while learning about the needs within our community. I value the ability to make a direct impact and support my personal commitment to the community. I work full time, am mother to two amazing daughters and a grandma.
