The YMCA of Greater Monmouth County has appointed seven new community-minded professionals to its 45-member Board of Directors. These volunteers guide the nonprofit’s strategic direction, set policy and raise philanthropic support to strengthen the community by connecting all people to their potential, purpose and each other. 

“We’re thrilled to expand our Board of Directors with community leaders who bring a diverse set of skills, experiences and perspectives to support the Y’s mission to serve all,” said Chief Volunteer Officer Ted Nappi, who oversees the board. 

The new board members, elected to three-year terms, are: 

  • Annamarie Cutroneo, of Matawan, is vice president of operations and support services at Jersey Shore University Medical Center. 
  • Natasha Davis, of Tinton Falls, is lead consultant at Davis Synaptic Solutions, LLC., and a public health advocate. 
  • Susan Harbison, of Fair Haven, is a retired special education teacher and former member of the Fair Haven and Rumson-Fair Haven boards of education.

  • Pamela Scott-Johnson, Ph.D., of Long Branch, is a provost and senior vice president of Academic Affairs at Monmouth University. 
  • Jennifer Phillips Smith, of Matawan, is an attorney with Gibbons Law, specializing in redevelopment, land use and regulations.
