Regional Chair

Doaa Hamed of South Bay, California

Hi. I live in South Bay, CA with my husband Mo Elwany, and young twins Adam and Kenzie (who has WS). I love diving and spending time on the beach with my family. I work as director of marketing for two start-up companies in the Bay Area, and have also served as the director of marketing and communications for Stanford University. I have been active in the special needs community in the Bay Area and I am a parent coach at a number of the local organizations, because I enjoy helping other families who are going through similar experiences. My goal is to spread awareness of Williams syndrome in my region and to advocate for more resources for our families.
