Board of Directors
Cynthia's family enjoyed living and working in Switzerland for five years where they skied and hiked the Alps. Since Switzerland is a small, landlocked country, and labor is very costly, waste of any kind is frowned upon. Cynthia adapted to a minimal waste lifestyle. As a board member of Hole Food Rescue, she can pursue her interests in resource conservation, local food, and healthcare.
Cynthia worked in the healthcare industry for 30 years in the US and Europe. She designed services for patients with chronic diseases, including medical reimbursement support and disease education. Cynthia built new businesses around a variety of diseases such as respiratory, dermatological, and eye care, and she grew these businesses to earn nearly $1 billion in sales. Cynthia also serves as the St. John's Medical Center Board Chair.
Len joined the Board to raise awareness about food insecurity in the community. Len believes that the redirecting of excess food is a unique way of providing a nutritious meal to those who would otherwise go hungry.
Len is a retired international finance executive who led three high tech companies, E*TRADE Financial, Iomega, and Virtual Radiologic, through their start-up and high-growth periods as their Chief Financial Officer. Prior to that, Len held senior financial positions at GE Plastics, GE Lighting, and GE Capital in both Europe and the US.

Annie Fenn, M.D.
physician, chef, culinary instructor
founder, Brain Health Kitchen cooking school & jacksonholefoodie.com
As a practicing physician in this community for more than 20 years, Annie has seen many families who don’t have enough to eat. Food insecurity leads to myriad health problems — infections, poor healing after surgery, preterm labor — which are mostly preventable. Annie joined the board of Hole Food Rescue to help with the effort to feed the hungry in our community, to repurpose excess food, and to help us all learn how to stop wasting so much food.
Growing up in a Sicilian-American family in upstate New York, Annie attributes her aversion to food waste to her frugal grandparents who never wasted a scrap of food. She moved to Jackson in 1994 to practice obstetrics and gynecology, which she did as a solo practitioner for six years before opening the Women’s Health Center of Jackson. After retiring from clinical practice eight years ago, she founded the Brain Health Kitchen Cooking School — the only culinary school of its kind to specialize in cooking to prevent Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
After graduate school at the University of Miami, Sharon spent most of her career on Wall Street in human resources, ending as HR Director at Sanford C. Bernstein. Subsequently, she volunteered her time while raising her two children in Connecticut. She was a board member for Horizons, a preK-12 academic enrichment program for underserved youth where she developed and taught nutrition classes. Sharon also volunteered for Share Our Strength, a Washington D.C.-based organization working to end child hunger, where she taught nutrition and cooking classes to low-income families in Bridgeport, CT. Her interest in food and nutrition also led her to the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York City, where she was certified in holistic health.
Founder, BBurrough LLC, strategy and marketing consulting
Beth's eyes were opened to the substantial food insecurity crisis across America through the company she co-founded with another family, PurFoods/Mom’s Meals. PurFoods focused on reducing Hunger Insecurity among seniors and helping patients recuperate after a hospital stay. Working on that mission still drives Beth, and so her first volunteer role, when she moved to Jackson, was with Hole Food Rescue.
Beth has worked in the healthcare and nutrition industries for over 30 years, primarily at Johnson & Johnson and at PurFoods, a start-up that grew into a mid-size, national company and was sold. At J&J, she lead Women's Health, Worldwide Oral Health, and strategic marketing for Biopharmaceuticals and several consumer businesses. At PurFoods, Beth worked to create custom nutrition solutions to best serve our customers with care and dignity.
