GuernseyTingle Vice President Stephanie Kalantarians, AIA, has been named President of the Board of Directors at Grove Christian Outreach Center, a charitable organization serving the Grove community of James City County.

Kalantarians joined the Outreach Center Board in 2020 and served to steward the organization through necessary restructuring during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Her appointment follows the retirement of former Board President Darryl Cunningham who departed at the end of his term limit.

Based in New Town, GuernseyTingle and its team members are strong supporters of charitable, philanthropic and other community organizations across the region.

Prior to her appointment to the Grove Christian Outreach Center Board, Kalantarians assisted on design and development of the Outreach Center facility that opened at its new location in 2013. Kalantarians is fueled by the mission of the nonprofit to meet the physical and spiritual needs of the disadvantaged in the Grove community and looks forward to serving in this new capacity.

“While James City County is one of the wealthiest areas in the Commonwealth, people in certain areas such as Grove quietly struggle to make ends meet with food and other basic necessities,” said Katie Patrick, Executive Director of Grove Christian Outreach Center. “We are delighted to have Stephanie Kalantarian’s leadership on our board as we look to make an even greater impact supporting the Grove community with dignity and compassion.”

Kalantarians also serves on the Virginia Peninsula Chamber of Commerce (VPCC) Board of Directors and is an Executive Partner at the William and Mary Raymond A. Mason School of Business where she volunteers to help coach graduate and undergraduate students in real-world problem-solving, business development, and job acquisition skills.

Since joining the firm in 2005, Kalantarians has participated in numerous public and private projects across the region, taking a particular interest in historic renovations and repurposing older structures into new uses.
