GREENFIELD — Kathleen Vahle put in a little early overtime Monday as she stayed through normal business hours and sorted through her second day as Meals on Wheels of Hancock County executive director.
Vahle assumed the lead role at Meals on Wheels on Friday and was still acclimating to her new office after outgoing executive director Melissa Ewald’s departure in December after five years.
Vahle brings over 20 years of nonprofit, fundraising and marketing experience to the position with a special emphasis on senior nutrition, she said.
Through her association with Elders At the Table (E.A.T.) Coalition in Indianapolis, a cooperative effort by 22 organizations to ensure Central Indiana’s seniors who need assistance receive daily meals, Vahle said she is familiar with and understands not only the mission of Meals On Wheels of Hancock County, but also the clients it serves.
