Our Team

  • Richard Chatham

    Director, Mira Foundation USA
    Richard Chatham has lived in the Sandhills of North Carolina for most of his life. He and his wife of 38 years, Allison, have a son and daughter who both live in the area.

    Upon graduating from Furman University, Richard returned to North Carolina and began a management career in the textile industry with Macfield Texturing.

    When the textile industry began to decline in the late 1980’s, Richard moved back to Southern Pines and became President of RGC Corporation, a business that represented educational and toy manufacturers to the retail market.

    Richard volunteered with and was Chairman of the Moore County Chapter of Ducks Unlimited for many years. From there, he began working as a volunteer for Mira Foundation USA before moving into Mira’s Director’s position.

  • Britney Logue

    Marketing and Development Manager
    Britney Logue lives in
    Colorado Springs, Colorado, where her Special Forces soldier husband is stationed. They have two children, ages 8 and 3.

    After receiving her son’s diagnoses that he is blind, she found the Mira Foundation. The Mira office happened to be less than two miles from her house. She immediately got involved volunteering and eventually became and employee.

    Britney is a certified graphic designer. Along with the Mira Foundation, Britney also volunteered as the Media and Marketing Manager for Climbing For Casualties. Climbing for Casualties was a fundraising effort/event where they were able to raise over $25,000 for the Special Forces Foundation in only a few short months.

    Britney is very passionate about the Mira
    Foundation’s mission to give guide
    dogs to blind children. She hopes
    to continue helping them grow, and
    help even more children throughout
    the United States.
