President Elect

Rebecca Dorsey
Nominated by Michael Polacek

Rebecca has served on the Board for the past year and has participated in planning the last conference as well as being our technological support in developing our web page and social media sites.  She is engaged and interested--both fundamental qualities for serving.  She also has made it clear that she would like to develop her leadership skills.  The Board of Directors is a great place to start!
 

Treasurer

Ashton Ballard
Nominated by Rebecca Dorsey

I have worked with Ashton in the past in different settings. She is very organized and goal-oriented. I believe her young spirit will bring a fresh vision to our APNA team.

Crystal Hartis
Nominated by Julie Ryder

Crystal and I shared a room at CPI 2015, at which time she was working with Immigration Services in AZ.  Since then, she has taken initiative toward job change and career advancement, which has brought her to Salem, OR.  I believe Crystal would be a great asset to the Board of Directors and that she will provide leadership in our State Chapter.
 

Secretary

Megan Ferrell
Nominated by Rebecca Dorsey

I would like to recommend Meghan for the role of secretary.   She is very detail oriented and works well with people in various different settings and venues.  She is very outgoing and has an established network of colleagues in Eugene, Salem, and Portland.
 

Member-at-Large

Jack Creviston
Nominated by Michael Polacek

Mr. Creviston is a psychiatric nurse practitioner (DNP) and professor at Linfield College and is very engaged and active in local and national projects related to nursing leadership--specifically the Nurses on Boards project.  He was instrumental in the acquisition of a $200,000 grant from the Robert Woods Johnson Foundation for the Oregon Action Coalition (OAC)—he serves on the OAC steering committee.  He has a vision and this role will allow him to move on that vision for improving the impact of the psychiatric-mental health nurse on health care reform in Oregon.

Crystal Hartis
Nominated by Julie Ryder

Crystal and I shared a room at CPI 2015, at which time she was working with Immigration Services in AZ.  Since then, she has taken initiative toward job change and career advancement, which has brought her to Salem, OR.  I believe Crystal would be a great asset to the Board of Directors and that she will provide leadership in our State Chapter.

Nancy Hodges

My goal is to represent the many psychiatric mental health nurses who are not NPs.  I think our interests are not being addressed adequately.

Anne Pollack
Nominated by Rebecca Dorsey

Anne is very motivated to be involved in the Oregon APNA chapter.  Anne is currently in the process of transitioning from Tennessee where she was a member of the Tennessee APNA chapter.  I believe her enthusiasm would be a good contribution to our team.

Jolyn Zeller

The role of Member-at-Large provided a solid foundation for leadership as the position was designed to alternate with other offices in maintaining integrity as the offices rotate.  As the original APNA Oregon Chapter founder and president I believe I have a solid background to serve as a member-at-large. My goal is to strengthen the leadership of our State Chapter.
