We would like to officially welcome the new additions to our Board of Directors! Here's what they have to say about joining our team.
“I am so grateful for the opportunity to work as a board member for the Council on Aging. My previous 19 years of experience as a school and community volunteer in the Seattle area, have given me a deep appreciation and a heartfelt awareness to the importance of serving others. As a volunteer driver for Meals on Wheels, I am deeply inspired by the dedication of the COA employees and volunteers; working together in support of our seniors through this compassionate, significant program. “
“I served on the National Diversity Committee of the American Council on Aging for several years. Aging is both a privilege and a period of difficult transition, as we all know. The Council on Aging’s dedication to the individual human dignity and independence of older adults is something I feel strongly about—I want to support them in achieving their goals."
“As an elder law and estate planning attorney, I enjoy advocating for seniors, helping seniors understand the various legal documents available to them to help them achieve their estate planning goals, and helping to connect seniors and their families to resources in the community that assist them in living safely at home for as long as possible. Prior to becoming an attorney, I spent 13 years working in non-profit organizations that served individuals with mental and physical disabilities. I am excited to serve on the Board of the Council on Aging for Henderson County in order to promote independent living and quality of life for seniors in the community.”
“As a Geriatric Care Manager, my practice for the past 15 years has focused on the wellbeing of seniors, assisting families with planning for their love one’s ongoing care needs. As a new Board member with COA and a long-time volunteer at the Sammy Williams Center, I would like to continue to be an advocate for seniors in Henderson County. “
