Staff

Colleen M. Kisel, Founder and CEO

Colleen's responsibilities include supervising all Foundation staff members; coordinating the distribution of "treasures" to thousands of children and teens who have been diagnosed with cancer nationwide; providing information about the Foundation to interested schools, churches, civic groups and members of the media; and soliciting support from donors. Her responsibilities require her to interact directly with both the employees and volunteers of the organization and to work with the Board of Directors to ensure the Foundation is functioning according to its mission statement and goals. In addition to managing the day-to-day functions of the organization, Colleen identifies and hosts events, makes frequent public appearances and implements comprehensive strategies that will raise public awareness of and ensure the future success of the Foundation. A successful author and dynamic public speaker, Colleen's passion for helping children and teens who have been diagnosed with cancer-which grew out of her experience as the mother of a cancer survivor-remains the driving force behind the success of the Treasure Chest Foundation.
