Harrisonburg, VA, September 21, 2021– The Central and Western Virginia Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association announces the addition of Christy Miller, a resident of Fort Defiance and Managing Director of Northwestern Mutual in Harrisonburg, to its board of directors.

A James Madison University graduate with a passion for helping others, Christy joined the financial industry in 2003.  She is a Managing Director for Northwestern Mutual committed to making a difference in her community and the lives of her clients. Along with leading her own personal practice, she is dedicated to mentoring, training and developing other financial advisors joining the office.
Christy, whose term of the board started in June, has several ties to Alzheimer’s.  She remembers her grandfather’s battle with Alzheimer’s.  She also sees the impact that Alzheimer’s and dementia can have on her clients.  Recently, her father was diagnosed with early onset dementia bringing the cause even closer to home.

“I have seen the impact and am committed to our mission to end Alzheimer’s and all other dementia. I want to be a part of that world and will do my part to lead the way.”
“I am exceptionally pleased to welcome Christy to our Board,” said Lissa Greenlee, Executive Director of the Central and Western Virginia Chapter.  "Christy brings professional talents and community leadership to our Chapter Board, which will enhance the success of our strategic plan and goals.  She also understands the personal impact of Alzheimer's disease, and the critical importance of both research and local services."
