BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Founder and President

Sue Trombino

“W.I.N. seeks to inform, inspire, and initiate response from women and men of all backgrounds.”

Sue Trombino was born in Caracas, Venezuela  and has had a vast exposure to world culture from having been raised in Central and South America, Africa and Europe. This diverse upbringing has given her a unique perspective on America and fostered an appreciation for the Judeo-Christian values upon which America was founded.

Sue holds many things dear about the United States of America, one of which is the armed services.  They are a great source of pride for her and her family as her father, mother, and brother all served this country with honor. Her dreams, passions, love of America, and love for the Lord are the driving force in all that she does.

Sue founded Women Impacting the Nation (W.I.N.) in the fall of 2005 because she felt called to make a difference. Her passion for empowering people with God’s truth and her strong love of America are the principles upon which W.I.N. is built.  They are the driving force behind Sue’s tireless commitment to make a difference. It is her passion to embolden every Christian and American to get involved in saving the moral compass of America. You will often hear Sue ask, “What does God say?” 

Sue is a professional speaker at seminars, forums, conferences, rallies, and church events. She has been a Bible Study Fellowship leader and is a graduate of the Chuck Colson Centurion Program.

Loretta Amsdell

Loretta was born to working class parents in rural Pennsylvania. She was raised devoutly Catholic with part of her early education being in parochial school and part in the public education system. She is married, a mother, and grandmother. As an adult, Loretta realized that faith was a lot more than religion. Around that same time she became aware that living in this United States of America was truly a gift. The combination of finding faith and appreciating this country made connecting with Women Impacting the Nation a natural fit for her.

Loretta continues her pursuit of knowing and serving her Lord every day of her life while doing what she can to support those who uphold the God-fearing values on which the United States of America were founded.

Criss Bertling

Criss is passionate about the U.S. Constitution and the principles upon which this nation was founded. She firmly believes that women make a difference in obvious and often unnoticed ways every day.  She believes that people working together for the common cause of education and truth will always ultimately W.I.N. – for this generation and generations to come.

Debbie Healy

Debbie began with a career as a registered nurse. She spent 23 years in healthcare, serving 6 of those years in the USAFR Nursing Corps. Her healthcare experience included critical care nursing, health administration, and pharmaceutical sales and marketing.

Over the years, Debbie watched as her beloved America was transforming into a destructive, misled nation.  Determined to take action on behalf of faith, family and freedom, she began a second career during which she has dedicated the last 15 years of her life to government initiatives:  public policy, grass roots leadership roles, legislative employment, and managing political campaigns. Debbie spent 8 years with Americans for Prosperity on a national level as a Regional Director; she worked as a legislative aide during the 69th general assembly of the Colorado legislation; and most recently was hired as Assistant to the President at Family Research Council (FRC) where she spent 2 ½ years growing in faith.

During Debbie’s time at FRC, through coalition building, her path crossed many times with W.I.N.  Debbie admires the dedication of the entire W.I.N. team and their commitment to supporting Judeo-Christian values upon which our country is founded.  Debbie proudly STANDS with W.I.N.’s vision – When We Show Up We Win!
