Cramer will take the reins from current executive director Adell Erozer, who is retiring after a 15-year tenure with Turning Points. Cramer brings 15 years of nonprofit leadership experience and a wealth of knowledge in team building, community engagement, fundraising and planned giving to the organization. Previously, she has held management-level positions with a variety of nationally recognized nonprofits, including the United Way, American Red Cross and American Heart Association.
