Terre Young

After working in Germany and Washington DC, Terre returned to the island in 1978 to visit her grandmother and has happily lived, worked, and raised her family, here ever since. Her family members are husband Scotty, son Mac, and daughter Emma. One year after retiring as Executive Director of Hospice of Martha’s Vineyard, I was invited by the board of Friends of Family Planning to help engage the island community in a conversation about abortion. Of course, I said yes, and now, 5 years later, I am more than ever committed to make this choice understood and accepted as a right and available here. I feel very strongly that reproductive health care be affordable and available to all island people and remain an ally for the LGBTQA+ community members. I am very proud of the support to the clinic and many projects this board accomplishes, and I am honored to work beside each member. I am also privileged to host the Cancer Support Groups meetings on Wednesday evenings, and a very dedicated rower in Sail MV’s Cornish Pilot gigs, Grace and Cassie.

Roger Maxfield

Roger has been on the board since September 2012. I was invited to this board by an exiting board member and, as I had been looking to give some time to the community I accepted. I missed the December 2012 board meeting to find out I was voted in as the Treasurer. I have become very passionate about our board and what we do and have accomplished. I started coming to the Vineyard seasonally in 1980 from March until December. I left the island in the spring of 1987 and returned in the spring of 1989 year-round. This is the only board I have been on, and I enjoy working with my fellow board members and working on our event fund raisers.

Erin Estrella

As a licensed clinical social worker, Erin has long been a passionate supporter of inclusive reproductive health & social justice issues. A professed city girl from Providence, RI, I moved to the island six years ago after a summer romance with an islander turned into so much more. I have long been involved with organizations that support women’s and LGBTQA+ rights and have dedicated much of my professional career to women’s behavioral health across the life cycle. Prior to moving to Martha’s Vineyard, I ran the psychiatric consultation service for Women & Infants Hospital in Providence, RI. I opened a private psychotherapy practice on island and have found much joy in meeting the behavioral health needs of our island population. I joined the board in early 2022 to follow my passion of promoting increased access to care for underserved populations in rural and urban settings.


Kristina Almquist

She and her family first started coming to Vineyard in 1994 and have made it their permanent home since 2011. Kristina is a Board Member and a volunteer working to improve our online presence to bring more people to our organization both as volunteers and to access service.

Marnely Murray

Marnely was born and raised in the Dominican Republic, and after 24 years of Caribbean Island living, she moved to another island, this time not as warm. Her work as a pastry chef brought her to the island, working at one of the most prestigious golf clubs on Martha’s Vineyard. She lives and works alongside her husband, and for the last 12 years, has been an active voice in showcasing that families can be made up of two people. Recently having had her fallopian tubes removed (a surgery called a salpingectomy), she has recently joined the Board of Friends of Family Planning as Chair of the Social Media Committee, where she hopes to empower, educate, and showcase the work of this organization even more.

She now works at the Martha’s Vineyard Community Foundation, a nonprofit which brings together donors, local nonprofits, and organizations to ensure this diverse community thrives—in perpetuity. Bringing people together, and connecting resources which those in the community who need them the most is what she finds so rewarding, and what drew her to joining the board of Friends of Family Planning in 2022.

She is excited to rejoin the Board to put her energy towards supporting this very worthwhile mission.
