Our Board Members: 
Kristina Repperger, MBA
Founder/ Chairman/ Sister to Joey
Kristina is a Senior Business Analyst for a healthcare organization in NYS.  She founded The Joey Project in April of 2019, two months after her brother died of an accidental fentanyl overdose on February 19.  She is determined to make sure her brother's death calls attention to epidemic that is currently thriving in our country and local communities through telling his story and her story as his sister.  She hopes to accomplish this by bringing together key members of the community and leaders that can facilitate and enable change through creative ideas and calls to action. We can work together to call attention to the gaps that currently exist surrounding laws, assistance to families in the midst of their struggles with someone they love, resources for people in active addiction and hopefully work toward a solution focused method of change.
