Tia’s President, Laura Libman, will be taking a six week medical leave of absence beginning Monday, August 10th. During this time, Wynona Heim will serve as Acting Director of the Tia Foundation. Wynona began her career with Tia as an intern during the summer of 2008 before going on to complete her Masters in Global Affairs and Management from the Thunderbird School of Global Management in December. While at Thunderbird, Wynona was active in the International Development Association, and emphasized international economic development during her studies.
She has further increased her expertise in our practices by serving on the fundraising committee for the past year, and being an all around volunteer resource for Tia. She brings with her not only an outstanding educational background, but two years of experience as a rural Emergency Medical Technician, and an additional five years of administrative and IT/data management experience prior to her Masters degree.
Although Laura will be severely missed during this time, Tia is lucky to be left in the very capable hands of Wynona Heim.
