I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people

Ephesians 1:18


Please join me in welcoming Tovah Wilson to the Human Resources and Compliance team. Tovah joins the team as the Human Resource coordinator with responsibilities in recruitment, on-boarding and employee engagement, including training. Tovah, a former Messiah RD, had a collateral assignment in Human Resources this past year and we are pleased to now have her on our team in a full-time capacity.

I’m likewise delighted to announce that Jennifer Smithmyer has successfully completed her General Industry OSHA certification and been promoted to the position of compliance coordinator. This was formerly Donna Fink’s position prior to her recent retirement. Please contact Jennifer for safety and compliance questions and concerns.

Amanda Coffey
Vice President for Human Resources and Compliance
