Cari Armbruster RN-BC

Executive Director. Alliance for Children Everywhere
With a heart for orphans and vulnerable children in some of the world’s poorest countries, Cari Armbruster’s present role as Executive Director at Alliance for Children Everywhere stems from a seasoned career in nursing, healthcare administration, and family advocacy positions.  
For 11 years, Cari held a series of fulfilling nursing and organizational roles at Seattle Children’s Hospital before starting her dedicated volunteer path with orphans in 2001.  With a natural affinity for producing health related policies and procedures, she helped to develop standards of care for a temporary crisis care facility in Zambia that has been advocating for children and families since 1999.   
An Alliance for Children Everywhere Board member for the past seven years, Cari provided consistent and thoughtful counsel to the Executive Director before transitioning to the role herself in January 2015.   
Her passion for child welfare, family empowerment, and education for the world’s most vulnerable children and their families is evident throughout every aspect of the ACE partnership.  Cari resides in Edmonds, WA (USA) with her husband, Erich, and two children, where they enjoy many Pacific Northwest outdoor activities as well as being active in their local church community.
