Today is the (gulp) 25th anniversary of Elyse Pivnick's employment at Isles. Please, please give her a very special shout out for being such an awesome part of Isles' evolution!
She started as a grant writer/fundraiser, then quickly engaged at a deep level in Isles' on-the-ground work.
She has been a pioneer in bridging the fields of community development and child health, and she's now a force at the state and national levels around child lead poisoning prevention.
We, and so many others, benefit directly from her perseverance, smarts and friendship. Happy 25th anniversary Elyse!
