the organizations successfully through a decade of growth and development.

"I was looking for a mission-driven organization," she commented upon accepting the new leadership position. "I see the Transplant Network as a special organization, where I could be the custodian of a special mission and a special group of people. How often do you get that opportunity?"

Ms. Siljestrom replaces Phyllis Weber, one of the organization's founders, who retired last year after 40 years in the donation field. Eugene Osborne, who has served as interim CEO, will return to his position as chief operating officer.

Ms. Siljestrom is known nationally as a speaker in end-of-life care issues. She is a member of the board of trustees of the California Hospice Foundation and a former past president of the board of the California Hospice and Palliative Care Association. She is also a founding director of the board of the George Mark Children's Foundation in the East Bay.

Ms. Siljestrom is a resident of Walnut Creek, Calif. and the mother of a daughter and two sons, all of whom live in the Bay Area.
