Christine Gearing

Christine Gearing (President)

Christine, newly elected Me-One president, gets her passion for volunteering genetically from her never-say-no father, Dave. She was originally inspired to join the Me-One Foundation board as treasurer after seeing first-hand the power of camp as a family host. Her background in budget management has helped keep the foundation’s accounts in good standing. As president, Christine is looking forward to building on the success of past president’s work and is excited to expand the Me-One network of supporters even more. In her spare time, Christine is an interior designer, happy golfer and completes an annual half marathon or two. But, as she says, “I walk really fast – so I don’t have to run!”

 Janice Hong

Janice Hong (Recording Secretary)

My name is Janice Hong and I have lived in Roseville for fifteen years. I have been married to my husband Dave for 23 years and we have three kids, Brittany, Brandon, and Makayla.  I love being involved with charity organizations because my family has been so blessed and we feel there is no better satisfaction than giving back to others in our community. I am so excited to work with the Me-One Foundation as acting Secretary.

Erica Reethof

Erika Reethof (Corresponding Secretary & Key Stakeholder Liaison)

Erika joined the Me-One family as a camp host in 2015 and, with her contagious smile and servant’s heart, has continued her commitment to our mission as a board member. Her personal connection to Me-One Foundation was driven by the difficult loss of her childhood best friend and sister to cancer. Erika landed in California after a 13 year career in the hotel business and considers “hospitality” her middle name. She uses these skills in her own interior design business and in giving back to her community. As a previous CASA worker and mission worker in orphanages in Romania, she loves bringing joy to families in need. Erika lives life with gusto while entertaining and cooking for friends and family with her husband and two dogs in Roseville. She looks forward to pouring her enthusiasm and creativity into the Me-One Foundation.
