Ellen Klinger - Vice President

Terry Nash - Secretary

Originally from Pennsylvania, Terry is a retired physician who has found a new calling in retirement, namely helping pets and people find each other at the CHS.  She has volunteered at the shelter since 2008, and has recently joined the board.  She has two "rescue" dogs and loves to hike with them almost daily near Bear Lake where she currently lives.  She brings to the board her extended experience volunteering as well as playing a small part in CHS's evolution into the continually improving institution it is today.  She feels strongly that in helping our animals, we are also directly impacting the lives of people and families.  Together we can save each other!!!
