SafeMinds Expands Its Footprint with Addition of Program Coordinator and New Baltimore Office
SafeMinds is proud to announce it has hired Diana Wingate-Gaiser, a parent of two boys with autism, and a seasoned autism advocate, as its program coordinator. Diana will be heavily involved in SafeMinds’ day-to-day operations, including organizing its multidisciplinary consortia on co-occurring conditions with autism, assisting in fundraising and development, and supporting government affairs activities focused on identifying the environmental causes of the autism epidemic.
SafeMinds Executive Director Lisa Wiederlight stated, “Diana is a talented advocate and development professional. We are looking forward to using her experience collaborating with community stakeholders and elected officials, and her dedication to spreading awareness within the community. We know she’ll help us reach new heights.”
Diana volunteered extensively for six years for Autism Speaks, raising funds for its annual walk and serving as the district area chair for its grass roots advocacy. She has spent countless hours advocating, emailing, and meeting with legislatures to achieve a mandate for insurance coverage in Maryland for children and adults with autism in 2014. Diana has 19 years of professional and financial experience from The Johns Hopkins University.
Diana will be working out of our new Baltimore office space, located at 100 West Road, Suite 300, Baltimore. She can be reached at email@example.com!
