As we say a fond farewell to our retiring Executive Director, Doris
No upcoming events scheduled...
As we say a fond farewell to our retiring Executive Director, Doris Monroe, we would like to thank her for the 21 years of dedicated service she gave us. We are pleased to announce we have found a new Executive Director for our Foundation. We have selected Tina M. Anderson to lead our agency in 2017 and going forward. Her experience and credentials are a great match for what our Foundation needs in order to meet the challenges of the future.
Tina will have the responsibility of strengthening the Epilepsy Foundation’s objective of improving the quality of life for all those affected by epilepsy and seizure disorders through education, direct services, and advocacy. Tina will also provide support to help raise research funds for the prevention and cure of epilepsy. Our Foundation is the only agency specifically organized to serve the diverse and special needs of the 10,000 children and 20,000 adults with epilepsy in Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Waukesha and Washington counties. This number does not include the 100,000 family members who may also need epilepsy-related services.
Tina began working with our organization on October 3, 2016. In order to ensure a smooth transition, Tina will be working with the retiring Executive Director during the next couple of months.
Tina is known for her work throughout the Milwaukee County area and the State of Wisconsin with disability and support services, a field where she worked before joining us here at the Epilepsy Foundation SE WI.
Here is a little background about Tina M. Anderson:
Before joining the Epilepsy Foundation SE WI, Tina was the Project Manager for My Choice Family Care. In this position, she was the key contact for the nine counties that fell under her purview. Prior to that, she was a Policy Analyst for the State of Wisconsin. There she was able to manage Medicaid Long Term Care enrollment for the Managed Care Organizations and for the clients they served.
She holds an MBA from Marquette University and her undergraduate work was completed at UW-Milwaukee. Please join us as we welcome Mrs. Tina M. Anderson to our organization! We are planning a Coffee Social shortly so you will have the opportunity to meet and greet Tina.
