MARTI FREUND, JD
Marti Freund has been on the Gift of Life team since 2010. She earned a BA from Union College in managerial economics and a JD from the University of Miami School of Law. Following graduation, Marti worked as an attorney in New York. At Gift of Life, she is responsible for event planning, community affairs, public relations, and communications. In a managerial capacity, Marti oversees the following departments: marketing and communications, recruitment, and operations & logistics.
Throughout her life, Marti has been actively involved in non-profits. In fact, she worked for the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure prior to joining the Gift of Life team. Her career focus shifted after her brother was diagnosed with leukemia and needed a bone marrow transplant. His donor, Ronnie, was found through the Gift of Life registry. Marti is extremely passionate about Gift of Life and devotes each day to furthering its mission.
Marti is originally from New Jersey and now resides in Boca Raton with her husband, George, and three sons, George, Eric and Patrick.
Lensa is a recent Lynn University graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in Film and Television. Lensa discovered her passion for non-profit at a young age volunteering for March Of Dimes and Susan G.

Lensa is looking forward to expanding the Campus Ambassador Program and helping to create a more diverse registry.
When Lensa isn't working, she is found working on film scripts, auditioning for shows with community theaters, or taking dance classes at Sean's Dance Studio in West Palm Beach.

Sean is a Zeta Beta Tau alumni who was fortunate enough dontate Peripheral Blood Stem Cells to a woman battling non-Hodgkins lymphoma back in 2014. At the Campus ambassador Symposium in 2019, Sean was surprised by the Gift of Life team, who brought his recipient Lisa in to surprise him! Sean has always been involved in student groups and organiztions - from when he was an undergraduate to the present. He advises two Zeta Beta Tau chapters, Eta Iota (Lynn University, Boca Raton, FL) and Eta Delta (SUNY Plattsburgh, Plattsburgh, NY) as well as facilitates two educational programs for Zeta Beta Tau: Safe Smart Dating and the Alcohol Skills Training Program.
Sean is currently finishing a Masters of Nonprofit Management at Florida Atlantic University and will continue with the PhD in Public Administration program there. He has experience working for public universities, private companies, and nonprofit organizations.
Sean's primary role is to work with and develop the Campus Ambassador Program, though he is also the primary contact for Zeta Beta Tau.
When Sean isn't working, he can often be found playing with his cat, involved in some sort of ZBT initiative, or playing dungeons and dragons or attending a broadway show with his fraternity brothers. He likes to sing and can be found at local karaoke events (and has a mainstage slot in his apartment every night!)!
