She became full-time in April 1998 and is now responsible for all of the day-to-day accounting functions along with managing the contracts for Refunds for Research grants and the annual conference exhibitors, audio/visual needs and signs.

She is a graduate of Bowling Green State University with a degree in Economics and Political Science.

Communications Director

Natalie joined our PBCC staff in 2012. As Communications Director, she works on video production, social media efforts, website updates, media outreach and PBCC programs. Natalie is a 2007 graduate of Elizabethtown College where she majored in Mass Communications.

She is honored and excited to be part of this wonderful team, fighting for this incredible cause. Some of her favorite things include popcorn, coffee, going to the movies, gardening, spending time with her family and cheering on the New York Yankees.

Director of Patient Advocacy

Dolores started with the PA Breast Cancer Coalition as a consultant for the first conference in 1995, and became a full-time employee in 1997. For the next several years her time was divided between the annual conference and the Mother’s Day Mammogram program. The experience gained through the mammogram program provided excellent training for her current position as Director of Patient Advocacy. While the PBCC advocates for all women in Pennsylvania through programming and legislative change, Dolores advocates on a one-on-one basis for women who might otherwise fall through the cracks in the system. She helps them navigate their way toward accessing quality medical care. It is a job that is both challenging and rewarding and she feels blessed to work with colleagues who support one another in an atmosphere of mutual respect.

Dolores is also a singer/songwriter, volunteers at hospitals in Philadelphia with the Musicians on Call program, and is an avid Phillies fan.

Outreach and Communications Coordinator

Abby Piskel is a 2016 graduate of Elizabethtown College where she majored in Corporate Communications and minored in English, Professional Writing. She started her professional career as a news reporter in her hometown of Hazleton, Pennsylvania and joined the PA Breast Cancer Coalition staff in February 2017 as the Outreach and Communications Coordinator. She is thrilled to be a part of an organization that makes a difference in the lives of others.

Some of Abby’s favorite things include reading, music, travel, hanging out with her friends, and her guinea pig Burton.
