Florida Hospital for Children has announced Brea Weiss as the 2017 Chairwoman of the Board. Weiss is a career development professional and had a key role in the construction of the Walt Disney Pavilion.
“We are delighted to welcome Brea as the new Chairwoman of the Board,” said Marla Silliman, CEO of Florida Hospital for Children. “Brea has been an enthusiastic and supportive member of our community and a champion for children’s causes for many years. Her business and leadership skills as our Chairwoman will be invaluable to achieving our mission.”
Weiss also dedicates time to take on new volunteer and charity opportunities that benefit children in her community. Brea and her husband, Al Weiss, have devoted their time and philanthropy to caring for the sickest of children in Orlando.
“I like to call myself the official cheerleader for the Children’s hospital, but my mentor, Dr. Des Cummings, calls me a ‘passionary’ for children, a title I deeply love,” said Weiss. “It gives me a great sense of pride to spend my time helping others.”
