Health Commissioner

NACCHO Leadership Roles:

  • NACCHO Immunization Workgroup; July 2017-June 2018 (Co-Chair)
  • Situational Awareness Sub-Committee; July 2017 - June 2018 (Chair)

Why I enjoy working with NACCHO:

Being a part of the Immunization Workgroup has allowed me to network with other immunization specialists across the country; I have gained insights of best practices and have been able to share these with my peers in OH. The workgroup members are enthusiastic and always willing to share common concerns and opportunities for improvement to increase vaccination rates across the country. It has been my privilege to be a member of this group and am saddened that I must leave due to term limits. The NACCHO staff throughout my tenure on the workgroup have been exceptional and I look forward to crossing paths in the future with them and the workgroup members.
