Staff Information

Dianne – Executive Director – dcherry@thevictorycenter.org

I have been the Executive Director since 2010 and am continuously awed and inspired by the cancer patients and survivors we serve every day. I am so grateful to be a part of The Victory Center and everything we do. Prior to coming to TVC, I spent nearly 18 years in the fundraising/development field. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, watching my son play sports, doing most anything with my three daughters, hanging out with my hubby, and dreaming of the beach!

Chelsea – Office Manager – cpreston@thevictorycenter.org

I’ve had the enjoyable and soul-filling role of being the colorful, resident trivia-telling Office Manager since 2017. I lost two grandfathers to cancer and working here and seeing the faces we change every day is an absolute joy. I hold a Bachelors of Business from UT. I’m an avid coffee/rescue dog/college football/shopping-lover. I enjoy finding new workouts, the beach, being outside and spending time with my fiancé Craig and his two girls.

Karen – Special Events Manager –kevans@thevictorycenter.org

I came to The Victory Center in 2014 as a volunteer and soon after was hired to coordinate fundraising events including the Luncheon & Fashion Show and Over the Edge for Victory, TVC’s rappelling fundraiser. As a licensed massage therapist, I developed a passion for helping cancer patients after completing training in oncology massage. I strongly believe that we can never do enough for cancer patients. When I’m not in the office I enjoy all types of home improvement projects, reading, and spending time with my husband and two adult children.

Penny – Program Director –pmccloskey@thevictorycenter.org

I joined The Victory Center in 2008. I was moved to support others going through the cancer journey after supporting my mother through her own cancer journey. Here, I’m able to utilize the skills I developed for my Masters in Counseling in order to facilitate support groups and be a listening ear to those having a difficult moment. I love the participants who make TVC part of their journey! At home, I enjoy reading and sitting in front of the fireplace with my wonderful husband and three cats.

Jackie Cummins- Development Coordinator –jcummins@thevictorycenter.org

I am so pleased to be a part of The Victory Center as Development Coordinator supporting survivors and patients, especially having been on my own cancer journey in 2018. You can find me at The Perrysburg location, where I am constantly reminded of the strength and goodness of our participants and their families. Outside of The Victory Center, I can be found at Birds Eye View Circus Space pursuing the circus arts, enjoying live music with my husband, or hanging around the dinner table with him and our four kids.

Lynn – Administrative Assistant –lchandler@thevictorycenter.org

Eleven years ago, I became the Administrative Assistant to The Victory Center. I have been humbled by the remarkable spirit of those who walk this journey. What I hope to provide to those who first enter our Center is kindness, compassion and making the first visit as comfortable and welcoming as possible. After hours, I read voraciously, eat Mediterranean at Poco Piatti’s, watch Ancient Aliens on History Channel, and enjoy travelling anywhere with my husband.
