Scott and Kim Woods, Founders
Jessica Kohl, Chief Financial Officer
I am honored to be a part of The Beautiful Scar Project and its many programs. As a financial analyst in the multifamily lending industry, I hope to help the foundation continue and improve the momentum it has created thus far. My connection to the infant loss community is through my cousin and his wife. They suffered the loss of their son, Westley Thomas Griffin, at just 18 days of age due to a heart problem. Just two short months later my friend Kim Woods was scheduled for a C-section to deliver Caleb Calvin Woods. I had helped her organize the nursery and attended her baby shower. I still vividly remember the morning of her last ultrasound to verify that Caleb was ready to be born I texted Kim to see how it went and the words that came back on the reply still bring tears to my eyes even all these years later “Caleb Died”. I knew that Westley had a heart defect before he was born and his family was so fortunate to have those 18 precious days with him. Kim & Scott would not get that chance. Before Caleb died I honestly had no idea that still birth was such a familiar event in this world.

Pat Guittar, Director of Programs
Having experienced infant loss on a personal level as Caleb’s grandmother, and feeling helpless to take away the pain from my own daughter and son-in-law, I am honored to be asked to serve on the board of The Beautiful Scar Project. This precious little boy, who never took a breath, will be speaking volumes in the support and guidance others will receive in their darkest hour. With 20 years of business experience and 39 years of working with children as a choral director, I wish to bring my expertise and life experiences to this vision.
Jen Houseman, Director of Events
Being part of a team such as The Beautiful Scar Project is an incredible honor. While working as an Event Manager for the past 15 years, I have gained experience that is vital to my position on the board. I look forward to utilizing my vast knowledge in event planning and passion for this non-profit to bring awareness of the courageous people that have suffered this type of significant loss. Through fundraisers, golf tournaments, special events and promotions, it is my hope to raise funds for this amazing cause.
Daniel Wolff, Director of Communications
I’m honored to be a part of an organization that has a sole purpose to help those dealing with the loss of a child. Everyone struggles with loss in a different, and painful way. Knowing the Beautiful Scar Project is there to be a resource for that grief is amazing. Until I joined Beautiful Scar, I had no idea that my own mother lost a child due to miscarriage. This brings a personal touch to my service on this Board of Directors, and makes me wish someone would have been there to support her thru her loss. No one should need to go thru this alone, and that’s why I’m here. I look forward to helping this organization grow by expanding fundraising efforts, expanding awareness, and offering help wherever it’s needed.
