The Green House Project welcomes two new team members!
We are so pleased to welcome Peer Network Director, Dan Klein, and Project Associate, Heather Marshall to our team!
Dan is joining the project from the New Hampshire Health Care Association, where he served as Assistant Executive Director. In this role, Dan was instrumental in areas of policy, communication, research, and advocacy. One of Dan’s achievements was to serve as the primary facilitator and advocate for Seniors Aid New Hampshire, a coalition of nursing home and assisted living community residents who lobby state and federal governments and raise money for charities. In his role as The Green House Peer Network Director, Dan will facilitate and explore ways in which education, information, and accountability support project success.
He can be reached via e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also welcome Project Associate, Heather Marshall. Heather’s education and experience will make her a valuable asset to the team. As an intern at National Council on Aging (NCOA) , she participated in many creative, evidence-based solutions to the issues impacting elders. This experience bolstered her opinion that sustainable solutions require education, support, and investment from the entire community. As a student at the Brown School of Social Work, she tailored her curriculum to focus on gerontology and more specifically, the mental health needs of older adults. In addition to this coursework, a previous internship and subsequent work experience at Concord Adult Day Enrichment Services further developed her skills and passion for elders. As a Project Associate, Heather will partner with a Project Guide to jointly support long-term care organizations interested in embracing the Green House model to improve the lives of elders. education.
