Becky Bynum, FCCAS Board President
“I started volunteering at CCAS in April of 2013, spending about 10 hours a week walking dogs. I was impressed right away with how welcoming a place it was – both the staff and the other volunteers made me feel at home there right away. Soon I began training other volunteers to walk dogs. When CCAS started playgroups, I was eager to help with them as well, because it was apparent how good they are for the dogs (and for the people connected with them as well!). I have also fostered puppies for CCAS for several years.
I live in Shaker with my husband Phil Calabrese, a federal judge for the Northern District of Ohio, and our dogs: a pit bull named Sunny and a shepherd mix named Hermes.
We have two children: Nate, a mechanical engineer, is a recent graduate of the University of Cincinnati, and Sophie is studying Exercise Science at the University of Texas at Austin.”
Lindsay Keith, FCCAS Board Treasurer
Lindsay is a Trust Officer at Johnson Trust Company located in Brecksville, OH. In this role, she works directly with clients, their attorneys, and other advisors to ensure their estate plan is customized and implemented in accordance with their goals and objectives. Lindsay holds the Certified Trust and Financial Advisor designation (CTFA).
In 2019, Lindsay learned of the great work being done at the Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter through social media posts about the famous “Savi and Salami”. With the help of FCCAS, these two dogs were transported cross-country to rescues that could further provide the support and structure they needed. Shortly thereafter, “Pickles”, who was a helper dog to Savi and Salami, became the CCAS Daily Dog. The warm and loving posts about Pickles drew Lindsay right into becoming a volunteer dog walker. She now helps with playgroups and fondly refers to it as her weekly therapy session.
Lindsay lives in Westpark with her boyfriend, Nick – along with their dog, Bennett, and cat, Emma.
