Director of Development & Communications
Dru arrived at CSP in January after more than 30 years in marketing communications, event management and non-profit development at organizations such as Ronald McDonald House Charities, Susan G. Komen and The Dougy Center.
A key member of the executive team, she is responsible for leading the strategy, planning and execution of fundraising, including the major gifts program, annual fund, planned giving, special events, and capital campaigns to support Cedar Sinai Park’s mission. Dru is grateful for the opportunity to serve her faith-based community and support our elders. She comes by that naturally, having a sister who is a geriatrician and a brother who practices elder law. Her mother (z”l) lived at Rose Schnitzer Manor and her mother-in-law, Elaine, is a resident now.
Dru is married to Rob, has two sons, one daughter-in-law, and her fifth Bernese Mountain Dog. In her spare time, she loves cooking, hiking, reading, tennis and live concerts – and is a rabid Oregon Ducks fan. During COVID, she is learning to play pickleball.
