TINA BILCHER-MURPHY

President

Tina has been member of SISI since 2015, joining the BOD in 2017 and currently serving as our club President. She has worn many hats in the community and is most proud of her work as a Nursing Assistant for 12 years at Carmel Richmond Nursing Home, which additionally led to her current 23 year and counting career as an LMT. Tina also shares in the community her unique expertise as a certified women’s foundation wear stylist, specializing in hard to fit sizes and mastectomy fittings and is otherwise known around town as The Bra Lady. She has been married to Craig Murphy for 20 years and they have 2 sons and 2 fur babies and live in Huguenot. Active in her community and Church, she also serves on the BSA committee as fundraising chair for Troop 5 Our Lady Star of the Sea, where she is also a certified grief counselor with Rainbows International. In her spare time she uses her ability to connect with the elderly and volunteers for  the NY CASC friendly visitor program. She and Craig are members of the SI ballroom dance club and her personal hobbies include scrapbooking and crafting and while she has a flair and passion for cooking, baking is definitely NOT her forte. Tina’s love and tenacity for Soroptimist International of Staten Island cannot be summed up in just a few short sentences, as she states “When women come together to help other women, clear the way….something worldly and worthy is about to be witnessed."

LISA VEGA

Corresponding Secretary

Lisa is a graduate of Columbia Business School with a  PhD in Management. 15 years ago, after receiving a diagnosis of breast cancer, I realized that the disease does not just affect the patient but also the families and friends. This knowledge kick-started my super powers of helping those affected by the disease and beyond. I became an advocate, volunteering with a number of organizations with their quest in finding a cure. My reason for being a Soroptimist is that it would allow me to spread my wings even further within the community, to assist girls and women reach their goals.
