Terry Itameri-Kinter (Secretary)

Terry and his wife Kristina are long-time supporters of animal shelters, both in Massachusetts where he previously resided, and especially here at NCAL since moving to Stowe in 2011. They have had the privilege of making a cat and half a dozen dogs a part of their family over the past 40 years. The most recent four-legged family member is an older girl with some medical issues, whose story was featured in NCAL’s 2017 Annual Fund campaign. Terry retired from a career in industrial business management recently, allowing him time to become more involved with volunteer opportunities in the area. As a member of the NCAL Board, he looks forward to applying his business experience, and his love for animals in need, to help NCAL grow and fulfill its mission.
