2019-2020 Board of Directors

Claudia Boldyga

Chair

Claudia resides on Kent Island in Stevensville with her husband Randy Boldyga, founder and President/CEO of RxNT, a medical software company based in Annapolis. Claudia and Randy have two sons Nathan (23), a recent graduate of UMBC, and Zach (29), a graduate of the University of Maryland.

  

Claudia has been in various leadership roles within the AAMC Foundation over the past decade. In addition to her service for many years as Auction Chair of the former annual AAMC Gala attended by more than 1,000 people, Claudia and her husband Randy have served as the Founding Chairs and cornerstone leaders of AAMC’s Denim & Diamonds Bash since its inception in 2014. This event raises more than $1 million annually to support vital mental health care and services for residents on both sides of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.

 

She has been on the Bosom Buddies Charities Board since 2016. This organization is very near and dear to Claudia's heart. Her mom passed away 12 years ago from cancer and most recently her mother-in- law is a breast cancer survivor. Unfortunately many of us have been touched, one way or another, by this horrible disease.

 

She is honored to be a part of such a wonderful group of ladies who are making a difference in their community through Bosom Buddies Charities’ mission, which is to promote breast cancer awareness, encourage early detection, support treatment and celebrate healing.
