Paula Cosby will start at ADAMHS this week as the director of external relations.
In addition to overseeing communications and marketing, she will serve as manager for the Greater Brain Health Foundation, according to a press release from the agency.
Cosby previously served as executive director for the Dayton nonprofit Clothes That Work, which works with clients in need of interview and work clothes.
She received a master’s degree from Wright State University in public administration and a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Dayton.
In addition to Cosby, Doug Thompson has joined ADAMHS as chief financial officer.
