Cancer Support Community Pasadena has elected two new members — local residents Alison Gamble and Clay Marquardt — to serve on its board of directors.
Gamble, a graduate of University of San Diego, is president of Gamble Jones Investment Counsel located in Pasadena. She joined the firm in 1993, became a portfolio manager in 1995, and a principal in the firm in 1998. She has served as president of the firm since 2011. Gamble is also an Advisory Board member of the Pasadena Community Foundation. In addition, she serves on the board of trustees at Mayfield Junior School and will be the board chair effective July 1.
Gamble and husband Mark reside in Altadena and have two children, Matthew, 14, and Grace, 12. She enjoys playing tennis, traveling (especially in their RV) and reading. “I was honored to be asked to join the CSCP board as this organization has a special place for my husband and me,” said Gamble. “My husband served on the board back in the late ’90s and this was my opportunity to serve this amazing organization that gives so much support to those dealing with cancer.”
