The Me-One Foundation Board of Directors and Advisors
Heidi Wieser – Founder

She plans on collaborating with the board and volunteers as diligently as possible to make every Camp Wieser a special, life-affirming weekend for each participant.
Christine Gearing – President
Christine 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. She has big plans ahead for the Foundation. 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!”

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 and raising her rescue greyhound, Piper. She loves pouring her enthusiasm and creativity into the Me-One Foundation.
