Today we announce that #MEAction’s co-founder and executive director, Jennifer Brea, is going to be transitioning to a board position so she can take time to focus on her health after five intense years of ME and advocacy. This will not happen immediately- we will be working hard to find a new Executive Director first! And Jen is not going away, but we are so proud that she is taking the time she deserves to focus on her health.
We are so grateful for Jen’s bold vision as our executive director over the past five years. We will miss working with Jen on a daily basis but we are delighted she will continue to share her talents and dynamism as a board member.
Please join us in celebrating the work that Jen has done as executive director since our founding, and read her letter about the transition. Meanwhile, #MEAction has begun the search for our new executive director and we will update you and ask for your help in the search.
Words can’t begin to express how much Jen has done for #MEAction and the fight for health equity for all people with ME. This community is strong, supportive, brave, and bold. Thanks to Jen and all of you, we know we are poised to continue the work, together in solidarity. Today, we thank Jen and begin our search. And tomorrow, like every other day, we continue the fight.
Laurie, Ben, Erin, Holly, Jaime, Hannah and Adriane
