New Gift Shops Manager

It’s with great pleasure that Friends of University Hospitals appoints Christina Blanchard as Gift Shops Manager of the Friends Gift Shop and Heart to Heart Boutique.


Christina has over 20 years of retail experience including many years as a Manager. From 2003 to 2013 she held a number of leadership positions with a major corporate retailer; the Hudson Bay Company. For the past year and a half Christina has worked closely with our unique blend of volunteers and staff.  She is a customer focused leader that believes teamwork is the culmination of individual efforts.


Christina has been Supervisor of the Friends Heart to Heart Boutique in the Mazankowski since the opening of the boutique in March 2016.


Please join me in welcoming Christina to her new position.
