Meet Our Board Leaders

PFANA honors inaugural Board members Richie Onori, Kevin Pruett and Tamara Taylor and invites you to meet today's Board of Directors

We share the vision of bringing people back together

Maybe you remember neighborhoods…where the community prospered, staples were abundant enough to help those in need, doors were left unlocked and the streets were safe. The evenings rang with warm conversation of people who were secure and the carefree laughter of children playing tag on the lawn or stickball in the streets. Life was simple but we cherished it and we never had a thought or fear of it being taken away…

“ The Art in each of us is the very best we are. Letting that come through in my own life is one of the greatest things I have ever done. Let your own art in whatever field you are in, shine through. It is valuable to us all.”

Lynda Ellen Hubbard a.k.a. Lynda Cain Hubbard, Author

Born and raised in Minnesota and Wisconsin, where middle class values are strong, Lynda always wanted to help people. Starting with pencil, her grandmother taught her to draw as a child. By her early teens she was going out to parks to draw portraits for $25 a pop! Always an “A” student, in part due to her mother being a teacher, Lynda’s real passion was in the Arts – anything aesthetic and spiritual. Winning an art scholarship, she studied abroad, traveling all over Europe, through India to her eventual destination – the Himalayas in Nepal. Her art a passport and entre to the world, Lynda did paintings and drawings for people all along the way, among them Gurkha warriors, Tibetans, even Aristocrats in Europe and finally, the honored request of the head Lama’s portrait in Kathmandu. She recounts her adventures in her Amazon published book: “Loving dangerously, Journey to Nepal”.

After meeting and mingling with people of all languages, religions, and circumstances she learned that love, compassion and empathy are the Soul in all of us. Lynda lives by the knowledge that we are all essentially a soul in a body and can be as spiritual as we live a true, honest life with others.
Learning from renowned mentors in the corporate arena, Lynda perfected the application of art to business in public relations and marketing using peerless research, positioning (aka branding) and thorough market analysis. With over 25 years of experience, she has consulted and worked with a wide array of businesses and entrepreneurs ranging from start-ups, well-established SMBs and Fortune 500 companies as well as several notable artists, all happy clients in business and industry. Lynda’s mantra: “There is also an Art to organization.”

Now as Chairman of People for a New America (AKA PFANA) working alongside successful artists such as Richie Onori, well known from “Sweet”, who founded the organization, Lynda has come full circle and is focused on its Mission. As she puts it, “Music attracts others and was created to relieve the effects of time on artistic people.  Artists reach millions of people with their message. Let’s make it a good one!”

What sets Kevin apart is his immense care factor and willingness to help others. His life's work, true passion and greatest love has always been...helping people.

Kevin Pruett

In his 40-year, nonprofit sector career, Kevin consulted more than 25,000 individuals one on one, personally influencing and shaping the lives of many thousands. A significant number were inspired to forward his determination to create a better world by becoming active leaders in their own communities, launching humanitarian start-ups, founding grass-root movements and implementing programs that to this day have improved the lives of tens of thousands. 

Kevin personally raised over $125 million for non-profit entities in support of education, youth drug education, community-wide literacy programs, business success oriented educational programs as well as human rights and other social betterment initiatives and programs. ​It was during this time he met Richie.
