Janet McCarthy

Founder & President

 

Every not for profit is started with a personal story. And our story is about Janet's brother, Glen. Glen tragically lost his life in June 2022 as one of 2000 cyclists participating in a charity bicycle ride to support AIDS. Janet's passion and drive to be the founder of Glen's Friends has come from his passing and their beautiful loving relationship.

 

Janet has spent her professional career in the Senior Housing Industry as a leader in  Business Development and Marketing. Along with owning and operating several brick/mortar Retail businesses. Her ability to lead a team and build a business has been at the root of her career. Her commitment to do good for others through the actions of Glen's amazing life, along with Glen's Friend's Mission Statement is at the forefront of all we will do.

Diane Corbett

Secretary

Diane and Glen met in first grade.  If they weren’t competing for chair positions in the clarinet section of the band, they were chasing each other around the playground and in the process became lifelong friends. Diane has treasured Glen’s friendship and the memories that they shared. 

 

Her goal as a board member of Glen’s Friends is to combine her accomplished legal talents with her deep passion to share Glen’s story.  Her  hope is that others will benefit from the enduring love Glen showed all of his friends throughout his lifetime. Diane has developed an established  professional career in the affordable housing and community development legal arena for over 30 years.   

 

She is a successful attorney with Applegate & Thorne-Thomsen, P.C.
