November 7, 2016

Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge, Inc. (RBARI) is thrilled to announce the appointment of Megan Boyle, Esq. , to the position of Executive Director.  Ms. Boyle, a licensed attorney with extensive executive-level experience working for both domestic and international non-profit organizations, previously held the position of COO for the Modest Needs Foundation, as well as worked in consulting capacities for UNICEF, DESA and the United Nations Human Rights Commission.

As Executive Director, Ms. Boyle will oversee all shelter staff, including RBARI’s newly hired veterinarian, Dr. Bonnie Wong, recently appointed shelter and volunteer managers, Lori McGahan and Frannie D’Annunzio and a staff of 32.   Ms. Boyle’s responsibilities will also include playing an integral role in both individual and corporate fundraising as well as driving increased shelter awareness as it embarks on a capital campaign towards a planned shelter expansion.   Designed to be a green facility, the shelter addition will enable RBARI to help save more animal lives from the immediate area, and enhance community efforts and education around animal welfare.

“Megan’s background is the perfect combination of leadership, vision, and ability to deliver on organizational goals.  What also impressed us about Megan is her unwavering passion and commitment to our animal population.  Her poised intelligence will play an important role in RBARI’s future.” says Board president, Arlene Jurovitsky.

Ms. Boyle has a B.A. from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and was part of the Honors Exchange program at Oxford University, Trinity College. She resides in Pompton Plains, NJ with her daughter and beloved dog Bella.
