Growing up surrounded by artists Roxie developed a passion for art making very early in life.  It wasn’t until she was working on her thesis at the Pacific Northwest College of Art that the healing power of art was realized in her. Her thesis explored her family’s survival of the Armenian Genocide.  Learning about what her family endured was painful but making art about it and sharing it with them was healing for all.

Fast forward a few years and Roxie found herself sharing the healing power of art as Director at CHAP. She and the staff, teachers and Board grew programs in and out of the hospital and threw the first ever CHAPlandia.

Now working at US Bank, Roxie is still passionate about doing what is right for her community and is excited to continue to support CHAP and its important mission.
