Nicole D. Scharf has joined the National Kidney Foundation of Maryland (NKF-MD) as its director of field services, Eastern Shore of Maryland.
The seven-year industry veteran will manage the affiliate’s four Kidney Walk events and directly coordinate the Southern Delaware and Salisbury Kidney Walk events. Additionally, she will facilitate programs relating to kidney health on the Eastern Shore.
“My goal is to expand the programs on the Eastern Shore and to continue to grow the walk revenue,” Scharf said. “I am excited about this opportunity, which will allow me to put my fundraising skills to use and call on my background in volunteer development.”
Scharf most recently served as division director with the March of Dimes, Eastern Shore Division, where she managed three walks and two special events, in addition to handling communications and program services for the eight counties on the Eastern Shore.
After graduating from Hodgson Vocational Technical High School, she earned an associate’s degree in business management from Delaware Technical Community College.
Serving central and western Maryland, the Delmarva Peninsula and portions of West Virginia, the National Kidney Foundation of Maryland is the area’s only voluntary health agency dedicated to the prevention, treatment and cure of kidney and urinary tract diseases.
