Welcoming our new Board Members!
We are very excited to welcome Lovey Offerle and Daniel Sheehan to the NAMI Pierce County Board of Directors! 💚
They will both be serving in their roles as Board Members at Large.
Lovey Offerle is originally from Honolulu, Hawaii and currently resides in the Browns Point area of Tacoma, WA. With a career in the travel industry for over fifty years, she has had the opportunity to meet and work with many people who live with and suffer from the effects of mental illness. When Lovey’s loved one began exhibiting symptoms of a mental illness, she made the painful journey during their recovery alone, unaware that there were resources such as NAMI that could have helped her along the way. It is her hope since discovering NAMI, that she can help and make a difference in someone else’s life as they go through a similar journey
Daniel Sheehan works for the DOC (Department of Corrections). He has a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice and Psychology and has specialized in special needs, mental health and drug courts. A big part of his passion for mental health advocacy stems from his career in law enforcement. Previously, he has volunteered with Crystal Judson Family Justice Center and the Seattle Municipal Court. A recent Mental Health First Aid training sparked his interest in NAMI Pierce County.
