TSHP Names Next Executive Director
Following a nationwide search and a review of applications from over 30 candidates, the TSHP Board of Directors approved hiring Deanna Menesses, CAE as TSHP’s next Executive Director during their October 25-26 meeting.
Deanna, who originally hails from New Orleans, LA, has an extensive background in non-profit association management. During her 20+ year career, she has had the pleasure of serving as the Associate Director of the Louisiana Pharmacists Association, Executive Director of the Louisiana Academy of Family Physicians, Tennessee Nurses Association, and Capital Area Medical Society, and most recently as President/CEO of the Florida Society of Association Executives.
Deanna is a results oriented leader with a strong record of success in the delivery of services to associations. She credits this success to the strong partnership she develops with her volunteer leaders and the open, continued communication with the members.
She continues her professional development through her membership and participation in the American Society of Association Executives and state SAE. Deanna also earned her Certified Association Executive (CAE) designation in December 2009, joining an elite group of approximately 3,000 professionals who have earned this prestigious certification in the United States.
Deanna considers her role in society to be that of a servant-leader. Her husband, Alan, is her best friend and her family is her source of joy. She will take over the CEO role on January 6, 2014, replacing Paul F. Davis who is retiring after serving as TSHP’s executive since 2003.
Dossey Honored with TSHP Special Recognition Award
Based upon a nomination by Austin Area Society of Health-System Pharmacists President Ladan Panahi, during their last meeting the TSHP Board of Directors approved a “TSHP Special Recognition” Award for Austin pharmacist Deana Dossey for her outstanding organizational activities. According to Ladan:
Deana has been a staple and a big reason Austin Area Society of Health System Pharmacists has been successful and active for all these years. She has organized and planned all the meetings and handled all the organizational affairs and truly enjoys giving back to our profession. I have never met someone with such passion for pharmacy. I have taken on the role of President since January, 2013 and she has still remained active and always lends me a helping hand. If anyone deserves to be recognized for organizational and community service, it should be her.
Deana Dossey, Pharm.D., BCPS, is a Senior Pharmacist and the Pharmacist-in-Charge at the Baylor Scott and White Hospital Taylor location. She serves as preceptor faculty for pharmacy students from both The University of Texas at Austin and Texas A&M University Health Science Center, as well as Austin Community College pharmacy technician students. Deana is a past Secretary of TSHP. She has served as both Treasurer and President of the Austin Area Society of Health-System Pharmacists. She has also been active in archiving TSHP’s history as well has having served the Society in a variety of capacities.
Deana enjoys spending free time outdoors with her husband, Terry, and is active in the Friends of Copperfield Nature Trails in Austin, TX.
