Kreinik is a founding member of REACT and has served as its president since its incorporation. She was one of a handful of residents who envisioned a strategy to answer a common concern among her friends, neighbors and co-workers.  Kreinik worked with fellow residents to form an organization to engage residents in steps that make a real difference for the planet in their home, neighborhood and community.

Mary Brown, REACT’s Director, says Kreinik is dedicated to the mission and to producing results.

“When members suggest ideas, Thea is able to envision how the idea matches the mission and works to address the topic in a manner that aligns with our goals and objectives,” she said.  “Her historical knowledge of the organization, and holistic, big-picture view keeping the organization on focus is invaluable to REACT.”
