During the 6th annual Legislative Awareness Day, Director Kornberg announced that she will be transitioning out of her role as Director of the Office of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. After seven years with the Office, Director Kornberg stated, “This has been a wonderful opportunity to bring services and access to the deaf, hard of hearing, and deafblind communities. It is with mixed emotion that I announce I will be leaving the office and returning to my work as a psychotherapist in the community.”
The Governor’s Appointments Office, in collaboration with Deputy Chief of Staff Amanda O’Malley and the staff at ODHH are working with stakeholders to develop clear guidelines for the appointment of a new Director. Interested applicants should send their resume with a cover letter and writing sample to Secretary Fielder in the Governor’s Appointments Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) by May 22. Please see ODHH’s May 1st position announcement for more information.
In addition, ODHH is excited to announce the recent hire of Adriana Featherstone as the new Administrative Assistant in the Office. (See next article). Director Kornberg believes that while change can be scary, it is also exciting and brings great opportunities for the new administration and for the office.
