Stines, of Jackson, has worked with the American Cancer Society for 10 years. She previously served as a development representative, Relay For Life training director and most recently as West Tennessee Relay For Life field director.
“I am excited about this new opportunity to continue the fight in the West Tennessee area to eradicate cancer,” she said.
The American Cancer Society works to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays by helping people stay well through early detection and prevention efforts and get well by offering information, support and programs and services to cancer patients and caregivers.
The agency also works to find cures through research to better detect, treat and prevent cancer, plus rallies communities together to fight back against the disease through advocacy, awareness and events like Relay For Life, Runway For A Cure and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.
Mrs. Stines is a graduate of the University of Tennessee at Martin. She is married to Jeremy Stines, and they have two children, Drew and Hailey.
