Barb Kozuh handles fundraising and events for the Delta Dental of Arizona Foundation. She was inspired by the dedication, patience and kind-heartedness of her childhood family dentist in Joliet, IL and wanted to make others feel good about their smiles by becoming a dentist. However, after graduating from Arizona State University with a business degree, she was lured into the non-profit sports industry where she was able to both fulfill her need to help others and satisfy her love of sports. Barb has served as executive director of Chicago White Sox Charities, the Frank Thomas Charitable Foundation and Phoenix Coyotes Charities. In addition, Barb has worked in marketing, advertising and public relations for a number of firms in Chicago and most recently was the director of grants and programs for the Arizona Foundation for Women. Barb and her family, which includes 6-year-old daughter Annie who also loves her dentist, live in North Phoenix.
