Reno, NV – March 21, 2023 – CARE Chest is proud to celebrate its Executive Director, Anne McNulty, for being chosen as Nevada’s 2023 Woman of the Year (McAndrew, 2023). Part of USA TODAY’s ongoing Women of the Century project, the Women of the Year award recognizes women across the country who have made a significant impact in their community and abroad. McNulty was chosen to receive this award because of her work at CARE Chest, a Nevada nonprofit helping provide free Medical Resources to low-income Nevadans (at or below 138% of the Federal Poverty Line). Her background as a social worker, mother, and proud Nevadan shine through each day to anyone she encounters. Her compassion, can-do attitude, and drive have helped CARE Chest grow into a statewide agency serving more than 18,000 Nevadans each year.

“My proudest moment as a professional was opening our offices in Las Vegas to serve the Southern half of the state. My proudest personal moment has been watching my children grow into amazing humans and adults.”

“My definition of courage is looking at a fear or an obstacle, an adversity straight on and developing a plan to address it and take it on. That is courageous whether it is something professionally or personally.”

Since assuming the role of Executive Director in 2019, Anne has pushed the agency to grow capacity and the agency’s ability to more efficiently and effectively provide medical resource programming in the State through rural and metro areas while shifting service models to increase access and improve each consumer’s experience. Thanks to those efforts, CARE Chest serves 37 communities monthly in addition to serving individuals at the Reno headquarters and Las Vegas distribution center.

Congratulations, Anne for receiving this honor!
