The Faces Behind myFace

Dina Zuckerberg
Director of Family Programs

myFace’s mission reflects my passion and my passion reflects the mission. As Director of Family Programs, I bring my life experience of growing up with a craniofacial difference to the programs I help implement for the individuals and families we serve. Whether it’s through our emotional support groups, online educational series, family networking events or public awareness initiatives, my goal is to advocate for the craniofacial community and make sure their voices are heard. I want everyone with a facial difference to know myFace is here for them, and that they are not alone. I’m thrilled to call myFace my family.

Andrea Newman
Senior Director of Development

In navigating this complex world in which we live, one of the best lessons I’ve learned is to be kind to others. This important lesson has impacted not only my personal life but more importantly, my professional path.  For the past two decades, I’ve had the good fortune to elevate the missions of non-profit social service and arts organizations, supporting the needs of individuals, families and communities to make our world a better place.  I am delighted to join the team at myFace as the Senior Director of Development, collaborating with colleagues to advance strategies and support operations as we strive to reach new goals.  

Karen Lazarus
Director of Campaign Development

With more than a decade of experience at two international nonprofit organizations, I know the tremendous impact that quality comprehensive care and support can have on the life of individuals and their families. myFace does, too, and I am proud to be part of an organization with such a strong and focused mission. As the Director of Campaign Development , I am committed to helping myFace lead, plan and implement development initiatives to increase our exposure and raise the funds we need so that we can continue to educate the public on our work and provide the individuals and families we serve with access to the resources, support and care they need – and deserve. It is an honor to work with such a passionate, committed and talented team.
