First Nations Health Directors Association Secretariat welcomes new Executive Director

July 6th, 2012

Greetings FNHDA Membership,

We are pleased to announce that Christine Stahler has been hired as the Executive Director of the First Nations Health Directors Association Secretariat. Christine, who recently completed a 15 month Interchange Agreement (with the Federal Government) working as Strategic Advisor for the FNHC Secretariat, is returning to the interim First Nations Health Authority. Her first day was July 3, 2012.

With the generous support from her band, the Squamish Nation, Christine was able to attend Simon Fraser University and receive her Bachelors of Arts Degree in Psychology. While attending University and after graduating, Christine continued to work in the financial industry in various supervisory and management positions before taking a position with the Federal Government. It was during her ten years with AANDC that Christine worked in frontline positions and directly with BC First Nation communities, most recently as the Manager of Child and Family Services. Her extensive experience in frontline operations, policy and strategic advice, and management not to mention her time with the FNHC and in-depth understanding of the organization and its context make her a great fit for this position.

Please join us in welcoming Christine to the FNHDA Secretariat.

Sincerely,
The FNHDA Board
