Kay Roper, Executive Director

Email: kay@cancersurvivorspark.org Cell: (864) 444-8063


With a degree in Public Relations and Speech Communication from the University of Georgia, Kay's background as a marketing and communications professional includes leading campaigns for the Greenville Health System's Cancer Institute and GHS Children's Hospital, Marketing Director of SC Children's Theatre and a career in pharmaceutical sales. She has extensive community leadership and volunteer experience with Junior League of Greenville, Young Life, Christ Episcopal Church, and the Greenville County School System.


A fourth-generation Greenville native, Kay and her "high school sweetheart" husband Phil are proud parents of their two grown children Alex and Jervey.  She is excited to be working alongside the passionate team bringing the Cancer Survivors Park to Greenville and to be intimately involved in helping change the way we live with cancer.  Cancer took the life of her younger sister Jinks Jervey Page, her grandmother Midge Hamilton, and both her in-laws Joyce and Charlie Roper, which played heavily in her decision to be involved with CSPA.


Laura Coleman Nickles, Administrative Assistant

Email: lc@cancersurvivorspark.org  Office (864)255-5010


Laura Coleman joined the Cancer Survivors Park Alliance in February of 2018. She was born and raised in Greenville, SC. At Greenville High, she served as Student Body President which laid the foundation of her passion for nonprofit work. She then went on to study history and political science at Presbyterian College before returning to Greenville.

"I have always had a desire to serve the Greenville Community. I felt called to CSPA as I am the 'survivor' of several different family members who have battled with cancer.  My favorite golf buddy and Uncle; Robert William Nickles lost his battle with Lung Cancer in 2011 and my crazy cool namesake Aunt; Laura Dabney McGrady beat cervical cancer in 2009 thanks to early detection. I am so thankful for my family's survivor story and how they have influenced me individually."
