Laurie Harrison joins KCSDV as our new Statewide SANE/SART Coordinator. Previously she worked with nurses and other hospital staff during her employment as a marketing and communications specialist at St. Francis Health Center in Topeka. She also served as KCSDV’s communications coordinator from 2004-2008. She brings years of experience in public relations, writing and editing, coordinating and project management and is excited to return to KCSDV.
Shawna Springstead joined KCSDV in June 2013 in the position of Director of Finance and Administration. She worked with the City of Topeka for the last several years and prior to that had experience with a small nonprofit. Shawna brings great experience and dedication to this complicated and important position at KCSDV.
Elaine Sherrick, former Director of Finance and Administration, retired on June 30th, 2013. She has long been a familiar face to local programs and collaborative partners, dedicating 15 years to KCSDV. We would like to thank her for her tireless and often late night work managing the very important but often overlooked administrative aspects of our work. KCSDV will miss Elaine, but we wish her the best in her retirement.
