Alan suffers from Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) and PTSD, and received his first ketamine infusion in 2018. His MDD has been in remission since. His insurance is one of the few that covers the infusions. He set out to create this fund to help those who are not so fortunate.
Karen is retired after teaching 4th and 5th grade at the Verona Area School District. She became interested in the promise of ketamine after seeing the life-giving change it made in Alan.
Karen is also involved in the Verona Lion's Club and volunteers at Agrace Hospice arranging flowers.
Mark is a CPA and Chief Financial Officer for SVA Companies. He met Alan through a mutual acquaintance and was impressed with his story and the mission of TAFI. He is honored to serve on the board and help us reach our goals.
Outside of work, Mark volunteers for Agrace Hospice at the hospitality desk, coaches Miracle League baseball in Cottage Grove, and serves on the Pleasant View Golf Course Advisory Committee.
