The HF Welcomes Celia King to the Board of Directors

As we mentioned in our September 22, 2015, issue of SomnusNooze, several people have recently joined the Board of Directors of the Hypersomnia Foundation. Last month, we introduced you to Scot Hulshizer. Today, we would like you to meet Celia King.

Ms. King serves as the CEO for Leadership Newark, Inc., a nonprofit agency in New Jersey. Her responsibilities include the day-IMG_0038_ppto-day management of a sizable budget, along with the oversight of several training programs offered by Leadership Newark in the areas of public policy enrichment, leadership development, and civic engagement for adults. As an advocate of civic participation, Celia takes her role seriously in engaging the public to be informed and involved in the community. She not only encourages involvement, but also maintains an active civic resume herself. Ms. King is an elected official who served as Councilwoman in her hometown of Maplewood, New Jersey. During her tenure, she also served in the capacity of Deputy Mayor for 5 years. Currently she actively serves on several nonprofit boards in New Jersey and is excited to join the Hypersomnia Foundation Board. Celia is also a former hospital administrator and feels that experience positions her to be an asset on the Hypersomnia Foundation Board. She has worked with Institutional Review Boards, worked closely with Principal Investigators overseeing experimental protocols, and had the responsibility of randomizing patients for various clinical regimens. This, coupled with her personal experience of having a daughter with IH, enables her to be quite committed to the mission of the Foundation and one who enthusiastically supports research to perhaps lead to an eventual cure. She holds a Master’s degree from Milano The New School University for Management and Urban Policy and completed her undergraduate studies at Syracuse University.
