COOKEVILLE –We invite all professional (active or retired) women and guests of Upper Cumberland to join us for our Oct. 30 meeting in Crossville. You are welcome to meet dynamic women, enjoy a wonderful lunch and hear our keynote speaker, Paula Ellis. As Public Education Coordinator for the Epilepsy Foundation of East Tennessee since 2004, Ms. Ellis will share information about the disorder.
Before coming to the Epilepsy Foundation, Ms. Ellis worked for Kroger for 20 years and then went on to work for the TVA Credit Union. It was at this time that she decided she wanted to do something in the non-profit field to help others. Her daughter, now 32, had seizures as a young child, which gives her great insight and passion for the mission of the Foundation.
In her position as Public Education Coordinator, she is responsible for recruiting, coordinating and scheduling first aid training presentations throughout 24 counties in East Tennessee. She travels to schools, day cares and businesses throughout the East Tennessee community to educate attendees in appropriate seizure first aid and other social issues surrounding the disorder of epilepsy. Ms. Ellis currently lives in Rockford with her husband of 24 years.
