Kathleen Momme, President & Chief Executive Officer
Kathleen’s 30+ year career in non-profits was inspired at an early age when she first volunteered as an Easter Bunny, visiting sick patients at the local hospital. She has served as Executive Director of the United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore for the last 23 years, and in that time has led the organization in steady growth, raising over $22,000,000 for local programs. Although she is not a “from here”, Kathleen, her husband Andrew, and their three children Drew, Julie Ann and Michael have resided on the Eastern Shore since the early 90s. Aside from eating, sleeping and breathing United Way, Kathleen enjoys spending time with her grandson Logan, Nationals baseball, Redskins football, and baking desserts for loyal United Way donors and volunteers.

Pam Gregory, Community Impact Director
Originally hired as Donor Relations Director, Pam's role changed in 2013 when UWLES made a strategic decision to focus staff efforts on programming, measurements, and outcomes. Commonly known as the office "mom", she is known for her chocolate addiction and for sharing her vice with volunteers, donors and pretty much anyone who decides to stop by for a visit. Pam lives in Salisbury with her husband, Jim, and their dogs, horses and other miscellaneous animals that show up on their farm. She is also a very proud mother of two beautiful girls, Paige and Sarah.
Stacey McMichael, Resource Development Manager
Stacey is a graduate of James M. Bennett and received her degree in Behavioral & Social Science from the University of Maryland. Upon graduation, her first job was with a nonprofit organization, where her desire to do more for those less fortunate was first felt. She returned to the Shore to build a restaurant business with her father, becoming the sole proprietor with her husband in 1999. After selling the restaurant, Stacey returned to the nonprofit world and eventually joined United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore. Her favorite part of United Way is the opportunity to work for such an integral community focused agency. In her "spare time", Stacey's life really begins and ends with family. She is blessed to have been born into a large family with everyone close by and she is honored to be the mother of two great kids, Madison & Devlin and married to her best friend, Phil.
Meg Davis, Office Manager
Meg joined United Way as Office Manager after fulfilling her lifelong dream of working for Disney... and yes, she got to dress up in character!

Meg currently lives in Salisbury with her husband Andrew and dog Lily. Her favorite hobbies are running, reading and traveling.
