Executive Director

I am thrilled to be the Executive Director of myFace. I am truly excited about enhancing myFace’s organizational vision, developing innovative programs and securing the resources to ensure the achievement of myFace’s short and long-term objectives. Most recently, I served as the Executive Director of Mission: Restore, a Foundation that provides life-saving and life-changing reconstructive surgery both globally and locally to children and adults in need. I also served as Deputy Director of the Criminal Justice Division of Safe Horizon, the nation’s largest provider of services to victims of crime, where I was responsible for the daily operation of more than thirty crime victim programs located throughout the five boroughs. Prior to moving to New York City, I held the position of Assistant District Attorney in the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I was also a Visiting Professor at Northeastern University’s Graduate School of Criminal Justice. I have my Juris Doctorate from Boston University School of Law, a Masters in Science degree from Northeastern University’s Graduate School of Criminal Justice, as well as an LL.M. in criminal law and constitutional law from New York University Law School.

Chloe Harrouche
Director of Development

I have always been passionate about healthcare and medicine. I graduated UPenn with a degree in Bioengineering and pursued a career in healthcare technology consulting. While I was excited to play a role in advancing the field of healthcare, I felt a strong and persistent desire to find more meaning. When I first met with myFace, I was humbled and inspired by the courage and determination emanating from each patient. Looking in the eyes of their parents and siblings, I could see the resilience and love that brought these families to the IRPS. I knew immediately I wanted to apply myself wholeheartedly to their fight. I am so grateful to have found myFace and been given the opportunity to help myFace provide comfort, support, and a better future for these remarkable individuals. As Director of Development, I look forward to promoting the myFace mission by raising more awareness for the craniofacial community and growing our support base.
