Roanoke, VA – Jessica Clarkson, Assistant Vice President Business Development at Member One Federal Credit Union was recently appointed to the board of directors at Susan G. Komen Virginia Blue Ridge.

Clarkson’s position officially begins January 2017 and is a two-year term.  Clarkson said she wanted to be on the board to help raise awareness of breast cancer and promote early detection.

“I want to help better the lives of those impacted by breast cancer. My mom passed away from breast cancer, so I have a very personal connection and want to get involved and help in any way possible,” Clarkson said.
