Georgia’s largest nonprofit working to end domestic violence now has nine new ladies at the helm.

The Partnership Against Domestic Violence announced its new board members on Friday. The new board members can each serve two terms that last for three years each.

They come from a variety of professional backgrounds. Katie Barton practices labor and employment law at Kilpatrick Townsend and Stockton. Sharon Cook oversees the Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta’s marketing, corporate communications and public relations functions.

Jennifer Gilmer is a managing director with the Deloitte Consulting technology practice focusing on providing leadership and day-to-day execution guidance for large-scale transformational initiatives. Neeru “Nina” Gupta works as a partner in the Atlanta office of Neison Mullins Riley and Scarborough LLP, focusing on education law.

Meimi Hartman acts as vice president and editorial manager in communications at the Primerica Financial Services home office in Duluth, while Tammy Palmgren is the director of medicare sales at Kaiser Permanente.

Laura Wilkinson Sinton is a marketing communications executive and entrepreneur who currently works as vice president and director of sales for CBS Radio. Vickie Smith works as vice president of employee relations for GPC Corporate.

And Charlotte Starfire is a national team lead for trade product sales covering U.S.-based small and mid-sized clients for Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

PADV President Nancy Friauf said each woman will play a key role in developing PADV over the next couple of years.

“The nine new board members will not only help shape the vision of PADV, but also execute the goals we recently approved in our three-year strategic plan,” she said.
