President | He/Him Pronouns
Mark is a proud parent and a PFLAG Hartford member from 2013 until forever! PFLAG Hartford was such a welcome – and welcoming! – source of support and education for his entire family in need that he was thrilled at the opportunity to give back. He joined the Board, first as Treasurer from 2015-2020, and then as President starting in 2020. Serving on the Board has been an honor and a privilege for Mark, because he gets to see so many individuals and families completely transformed. They come in suffering and confused, but PFLAG Hartford helps them find their own strength, renewed joy, and pride in their own and their loved ones’ authenticity. And along the way, deep bonds and lifelong friendships are created. It’s powerfully true, what we hear so often: PFLAG Hartford is Family!
