Heather Salazar

CEO/President

Heather Salazar is the CEO and President of Pink Ribbon Girls, a grassroots nonprofit organization that balances the fear and uncertainty that breast and other women’s reproductive cancers bring to individuals and families by providing direct services, education, and support. She grew up in the Miami Valley and lives in Troy, Ohio with her husband, Steve, and her four amazing children. Heather graduated with a B.S. in Psychology from Wright State University in Communication and Social Work. As a survivor of breast cancer herself, Heather strives to ensure that No One Travels This Road Alone.

Living a mediocre life was never for me. After cancer, I chose to really LIVE every minute and to give back.  PRG is my heart and these families mean the world to me.

I want to show my children that life is about caring for others and serving those in need. We each have special treasures that we can use to make the world a better place!

Regional Manager - Cincinnati/NKY

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 39 our family was given a great deal of love and support from our neighbors & community. I always prayed that if I survived I would find a way to pay back that kindness and help others. I feel like PRG is an outlet to do this.
 
 

Courtney Kraemer

Community Engagement Associate - Cincinnati/NKY

I have always been passionate about helping others, and after 7 years as an X-ray technologist I wanted to grow my skills even more out into the community. I personally lost a loved one to breast cancer, and know many others who have battled through. It’s important to me that I share PRG’s mission and help more people in the Cincinnati/NKY region. I am very blessed to be a part of the PRG family!
