The Providence St. John Foundation recently added two new staff members.

"We are excited to have Erinn and Sue on board. They both have outstanding experience in their respective fields that will benefit the Foundation and the hospitals," says Mary Ellen Clark, foundation executive director.

Mathe will oversee the daily operations of the shops, including inventory, ordering and merchandising.

"My goal is to satisfy the needs of our customers, providing cost-effective, creative gift ideas," Mathe said.

Proceeds from gift shop sales support the Providence St. John Foundation.

Prior to joining the foundation, Mathe worked for 13 years as the assistant manager of a gift shop called Simply Southwest in Pratt. Before that, she worked at a local drug store. Mathe grew up in the Quindaro area of Kansas City, Kan. She now makes her home in Shawnee. She has three grown children and three grandchildren.

As development associate, Scott will be responsible for raising funds to support the foundation's goals, coordinating special events, and promoting the foundation in the Leavenworth area.

"My goal for the foundation is to reach out to our community as partners in support of the hospital's mission," Scott said.

Before joining the foundation, Scott worked at the Marriott Hotel on the Country Club Plaza as an event manager. She also has worked as the convention services manager for Interstate Hotels and Resorts in Kansas City, Oklahoma City, and Dallas.

Scott has a bachelor of arts degree in communication studies from the University of Kansas.
