North Sound ACH continues to expand the team! We welcomed three people this month, and promoted two staff to new roles. 

In August we welcomed: 

  • Natalie Esparza as the Communications Coordinator. They bring five years experience in creating new and innovative ways in connecting information and resources to those who wouldn’t normally see or pay attention to it.
  • Marco Morales as Rural Health Project Manager, having most recently worked in Mount Vernon Schools as a Migrant Graduation Specialist and at Northwest Educational Service District 189 as an Educational Advocate. 
  • Rocio Castillo-Foell as Workforce and Health Education Project Manager. Rocio has nearly two decades of experience in public health, health education, and community engagement, including campaigns for disease prevention, health promotion, and the operation of informative health workshops in Mexico, Canada, and the United States.

Two team members also advanced into new roles: 

Vanessa Diaz, an administrative associate since 2019, is now Project Manager for COVID response. “I am excited and looking forward to being able to serve the North Sound Region in a greater capacity. The collaborations between North Sound ACH, and community partners is essential to moving the work forward.”

Heather McGuinness, a Project Manager at North Sound ACH since 2017, is now the Public Health Liaison. “I am honored to take on this role after four years at North Sound ACH. I’ll be collaborating with local health jurisdictions, state agencies and others, to ensure that efforts to advance equitable well-being across the region are aligned. This is a key part of ‘what’s next’ for North Sound ACH, as we move beyond the Medicaid Transformation Project and grow into a learning, advocacy, and collaborative action network.”

We’re excited to keep growing such an amazing team. Join us in congratulating them in their new roles!
