KIM TEEMS FOX
Kim discovered FACES around 2005 while working as a graphic designer at The Print Shop. She was assigned to design a new FACES' brochure and in the process fell in love with FACES and its mission. It wasn't long before Kim helped FACES start a motorcycle ride in Chattanooga, TN called Ride 4 Smiles. A year or so later she was invited to join FACES Board of Directors. She always found it quite amusing that a bluejeaned clad, motorcycle riding woman would be on the Board of Directors of FACES, but it all worked perfectly. In 2012 Kim became the Program and Communications Director, and in January 2019 Kim became FACES President. Kim's passion for people with differences of all kinds makes her the perfect match for the job.
Emily’s career in the not-for-profit sector began as manager and curator of an antique and modern doll museum, which led to roles in development and special events for arts, education, and social services organizations in Chattanooga. She learned about FACES in 1997 when she moved to Chattanooga and read of the organization's recent name change and public awareness efforts.
Emily is a graduate of Louisiana State University and has two grown daughters. Besides an interest in home renovations, reading, and gardening, a year ago she has ventured into acting and has performed in three productions in local theaters.
FACES CAMP DIRECTOR
Ashley Rhodes was born with Crouzon Syndrome and worked full time with FACES in her twenties. Today, she is a middle school counselor in South Carolina where she lives with her husband, Patrick, and son, Jack. Ashley was instrumental in developing the concept of FACES Camp and pioneering its success. During the summer, there is no place she would rather be than at FACES Camp!
Mark discovered FACES through family. His step-father, John Sellers, was on the FACES board and had spoken often about the important work they do. When Mark and his wife Angie, moved to Chattanooga in 2017 to be closer to family, she joined the board as well. He learned more about the great work FACES does when he volunteered at the FACES 50th anniversary event.
Mark had a career in retail for 35 years, 27 of which for Bath & Body Works/Limited Brands, where he worked his way up from an entry level position to an analyst. In 2014 Mark decided to leave the corporate world behind to start his own business framing art and managing a catalog of art left to him by his father.
When he moved to Chattanooga Mark decided to sunset that business and lived in semi-retirement working some time for Amazon and Mars. When Mark heard that FACES was looking for a Part-Time Office Assistant he jumped at the chance to be involved in doing “good” and helping an exceptional organization like FACES.
