Program & Outreach Director
Stefanie Elkins is the Program and Outreach Director for the Leeza’s Place in Sherman Oaks, California. Stefanie’s earliest volunteer memory was calling out bingo numbers at a senior facility and bringing a smile to the faces of seniors even if it was for just a second. Since that time Stefanie has made it her personal and professional mission to empower and educate individuals on how they can make a difference in their own lives and the lives of others.
Stefanie is very excited and humbled to be part of The Leeza Gibbon’s Memory Foundation family and understands that caregivers of those with memory disorders experience a challenging, scary and emotional ride. Stefanie looks forward to being a resource and friend for caregivers and their loved ones and to remind the families that there is a Life after Diagnosis.
Program & Outreach Assistant Director
Nadia Cantuña is the Program and Outreach Assistant Director for Leeza’s Place at Sherman Oaks. Her passion has always been to empower and educate others. As a child, she would tell her parents, “I want to be a voice for people that are afraid to speak up or that think that they don’t count.”
Nadia’s commitment to the non-profit community combined with her education, professional experience, and her interest in working in a bilingual capacity has led her to join the Leeza’s Place family. She is excited to be part of the team and spread our mission of caregiver support and awareness in the Latino community.
