Alexa G. Colinco, SecretaryHello! My name is Alexa Gail (AG) Colinco, and I will graduate, from Cornell University, in May 2020 with a degree in Biomedical Engineering. After I graduate, I will intern with Cru, a Christian fellowship in Ithaca, then begin medical school to pursue a career in medical missions. I joined the board in 2019 after finding the organization to be a God-glorifying example of faith and love in action. In my free time I love leading worship, writing music, hiking, and volunteering in Ithaca.
Martha SmithWhen invited to join the CFP Board, Martha said it was an easy “yes” because she had seen what a great presence CFP had in the community.

Martha and her husband Jerry have lived in Ithaca 44 years, they have two children, Maya & Lloyd.
