Gratitude to Janie Baer
We are sad to announce that Janie Baer has retired from her position a
s Executive Assistant. Since late 2015, Janie has been an immense support in keeping the office running smoothly. She will be missed by all. Happily, there is good news: this is not truly a goodbye, as Janie has been invited to return to the WWf(a)C Board of Trustees. Many thanks for the multiple facets of your service to WWf(a)C, Janie!
Welcome, Lisa Rocklin
Women Writing for (a) Change is excited to announce that Lisa Rocklin has been hired to fill a newly created staff position, that of Associate Director! In this capacity, she will take on overflow duties of the Executive Director, in addition to some of the duties previously carried out by Janie Baer.
Lisa found her way to a WWf(a)C Saturday Sampler in 2006. From that first circle, it was wonderfully obvious that her writing voice had found a home. Formerly an English teacher at McAuley High School, she has a BA in English and an MA in Secondary Education from Northern Kentucky University. Prior experience includes managing customer service teams and hiring and training market research staff.
Lisa is a 2015 graduate of the Conscious Feminine Leadership Academy. Supporting girls to cultivate their authentic selves through writing is a passion she pursues as a facilitator of teens' and young women's classes. She lives in Mt. Healthy with her husband Tony and dogs Daisy and Hazel.
A very big welcome to Lisa!
