Cancer Support Community Pasadena has elected two new members — local residents Alison Gamble and Clay Marquardt — to serve on its board of directors.
“Alison and Clay are outstanding business leaders in our community, and they are passionate about improving the lives of people facing cancer,” said CSCP Board President Michael Healy. We are confident that they will add great value to our board.”
Gamble, a graduate of University of San Diego, is president of Gamble Jones Investment Counsel located in Pasadena. She joined the firm in 1993, became a portfolio manager in 1995, and a principal in the firm in 1998. She has served as president of the firm since 2011. Gamble is also an Advisory Board member of the Pasadena Community Foundation. In addition, she serves on the board of trustees at Mayfield Junior School and will be the board chair effective July 1.
Gamble and husband Mark reside in Altadena and have two children, Matthew, 14, and Grace, 12. She enjoys playing tennis, traveling (especially in their RV) and reading. “I was honored to be asked to join the CSCP board as this organization has a special place for my husband and me,” said Gamble. “My husband served on the board back in the late ’90s and this was my opportunity to serve this amazing organization that gives so much support to those dealing with cancer.”
Marquardt, returning to the board for his second term, is a financial adviser in Pasadena. With more than 37 years of experience in financial services, Marquardt has developed investment strategies for individuals and families targeted to their specific needs and goals. A graduate of Rollins College, Marquardt lives in Pasadena with his wife, Betsy Snyder, an Emmy award-winning television producer. They have two adult children, Charlie and Anne. In his spare time, Marquardt loves to fly fish.
“I’m excited to rejoin CSCP to help us continue to provide a community where cancer patients, their families, and loved ones can receive the support they need free of charge,” said Marquardt. “I love working with the people at CSCP and have seen the difference we can make in people’s lives. I really want to see that continue and am happy to be a small part of this great organization.”
