New Executive Director at NAMI Multnomah
NAMI Multnomah is pleased to announce the hiring of our new Executive Director, Patricia Day TenEyck. She started May 1, 2014.
Ms. TenEyck comes to us with over 20 years of nonprofit management and development experience. Previously, she has worked with the World Affairs Council of Oregon, Special Olympics Oregon, Bradley Angle House, and the Police Activities League of Greater Portland. She also served as the first Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Oregon. For five years, she worked closely with Habitat affiliates across the state and with Oregon Housing and Community Development and the Oregon State Legislature.
Ms. TenEyck states she is “very excited about joining NAMI Multnomah, as mental health issues have always been of keen interest to me. My family has been impacted by mental health struggles over the years, and I have always been dismayed at the lack of real world support.” She feels privileged to now be able to apply her passion and experience with NAMI’s most effective and powerful ‘real world supports’.
The Board of NAMI is excited about Patricia’s experience and capacity to lead our staff, volunteers, members, and supporters and ensure NAMI remains a stable, positive and essential presence in our community.
