I am very excited to join the Live Healthy Appalachia team as the new Executive Director! Before joining LHA, I served as the Senior Project Specialist for the Athens County Economic Development Council (ACEDC). Prior to that I worked in the fields of healthcare public relations and strategic communication. I look forward to building on the legacy LHA has created over the past few years under the leadership of Sherri Oliver by bringing to the table my areas of expertise and passion for active and nutritious living. As Executive Director, I will continue building strong community partnerships and fostering our existing partnerships while working to strengthen the overall sustainability of Live Healthy Appalachia. This will keep us well-positioned to serve as the premier provider of accessible healthy cooking education in Southeast Ohio for years to come!
