Roxanna Green has been a home healthcare nurse who now serves as the CEO of the Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Foundation. Her husband, John is National Cross-Checker in the scouting department of the Los Angeles Dodgers.  They have a son, Dallas, 13, and their Daughter would have turned 10 on the 10th anniversary of 9/11..

Roxanna Green is a woman who treasures her relationships with John, her husband of eighteen years, her son Dallas, and her friends. She has led a life of service to others, through her former profession as a nurse and through her work in the philanthropic community as a volunteer for numerous organizations.

On January 8, 2011, Roxanna became the face of motherhood for Tucson, for Arizona, and for the nation when her nine-year-old daughter, Christina-Taylor, was killed in the shooting that injured Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and killed 5 others.

Roxanna is now the CEO of the Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Foundation, an organization she founded to provide grants for community projects that embody her daughter’s interests. “The foundation was established in the hopes of bringing her dreams to life,” Roxanna says.

Roxanna co-wrote " As Good As She Imagined" with NY Times best selling author, Jerry B. Jenkins. It is an inspirational book of hope which tells her family's story. Roxanna was awarded the "Remarkable Moms" award last year by Tu Nidito.

Roxanna has spent the two years since her daughter’s death working to ensure that Christina-Taylor’s legacy endures forever. “As a parent, I believe that we all want to make our children’s hopes come true,” she says. “I want to do everything possible to make my daughter’s dreams come to life for her.”
