New Beginnings

Hello everyone.  Let me introduce myself.  My name is Pamela Jacques and I am the new Executive Director for the Epilepsy Foundation of Western Ohio. I am excited about what the future holds for the Foundation. Our priority is to serve those who live with epilepsy and their families- so you will see more programs and services being offered designed to do just that- serve. Right now we're in the process of shoring up our resources and planning our longer term goals.  

A little background about me.  I have spent most of my professional life working in nonprofits, including 21 years at Premier Health here in Dayton.  The last 9 of which was as the Executive Director of Premier Community Health, which used to be a small subsidiary of Premier that offered health and wellness programs to the community.  I have a Master of Science from California College for Health Sciences in Health Services and a Bachelors degree in Communications from Wright State University.  I'm also a Certified Health Education Specialist. 

It is my privilege to serve this area and those living with epilepsy and their families.  I plan to share our progress here as we move forward. If you have a topic you'd like to hear more about, please let us know.  Perhaps we can make it the topic of one of these blogs.

To new beginnings!
