Our Volunteer of the Month for October is Theresa Haggerty!

For nearly a year, Theresa has been volunteering in our office on a weekly basis. Most recently, she has been helping expand our outreach to preschool and elementary schools. She is frequently praised by EFNE staff members for her dedication and attention to detail. 

In April 2017, Theresa was honored for logging the most volunteer hours during the first quarter of the year.

Our Director of Community Education, Susan Welby, commended Theresa for her reliability and ability to pick up new tasks quickly.

Our Chief Operating Office, Elaine Kiriakopoulos, remarked “Theresa demonstrates a steadfast commitment to Epilepsy Foundation New England and our entire epilepsy community.  EFNE is fortunate to have Theresa share her time and talent with us. Volunteers like Theresa are critical to the work we do, and are so very appreciated. Thank you, Theresa, for working to improve the lives of families facing the challenges of epilepsy.”

Thank you Theresa, for everything that you do! We are so grateful for your commitment to our organization.
