As a community-based nonprofit provider, we are governed by a board of directors from the local  community. That means people, most of whom have had a loved one served by Four Seasons, are guiding our mission, vision, and values.

Loretta Shelton, Executive Director

“People make their community a better place by investing in the compassionate care provided by Four Seasons to those who are vulnerable.”

Loretta Shelton, CFRE, is a twenty-year veteran in nonprofit management. She joined the Four Seasons team in 2015 as the Foundation’s first Executive Director.

Loretta earned her BA in Organizational Communications from Mars Hill College (now Mars Hill University) and her MA from Liberty University. She earned a Nonprofit Management Certification from Duke University and a master’s level Certification in Project Management from Western Carolina University. She is a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE), a recognition of her personal and professional achievement and commitment. Before taking the position at Four Seasons, Loretta served at Mars Hill College and North Carolina State University Agricultural and Life Sciences Foundation.

Loretta is an active volunteer and currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education Foundation (ACPE) and the North Carolina Hospice and Home Care Foundation.

Most importantly, Loretta is passionate about helping those suffering from chronic and serious illnesses. She is a cancer survivor, and prior to coming to Four Seasons, she walked alongside patients and families as a hospice volunteer. These experiences deepened her understanding of the impact that the generosity of others can make on another human’s life, making her a stronger, more effective leader, community builder, and storyteller.

Loretta is fulfilling her life’s purpose of strengthening community as leader of the Foundation. She believes that love expressed through sharing of one’s time, talents, and financial resources provides unparalleled satisfaction and joy.
