The ALS Association of Texas has been dedicated to serving and supporting Texans living with ALS since our formation in 2012. Since then, we’ve seen major growth in our patient community which has led to a greater need for our services. This growth inspired a new on-the-ground leadership model in each of our three regions: North Texas, the Greater Houston region, and the Southwest Region. Regional Directors in each region oversee a team of care services professionals, fundraisers, and operational staff, bringing them together to best support patient needs and community fundraising.
The ALS Association of Texas is happy to welcome Megan Cooley as our new Regional Director in the North Texas area! Megan is a seasoned professional with 17+ years of experience in a variety of non profits, most recently a local domestic violence program, and prior to that with the Arthritis Foundation. Megan and her family are natives to their home state of Wisconsin but are no strangers to Texas and look forward to relocating back to the Dallas area. Megan has a bachelor’s degree in communications, a masters in organizational change leadership, and most recently received her certification in executive coaching. Welcome to the North Texas team Megan!
Patients all over the state deserve access to resources and care, and we hope to position ourselves to be able to reach those in more rural areas and beyond. We’re striving to provide every Texan living with ALS access to ALS clinics, support groups, durable medical equipment loans and other resources. With this new regional leadership structure in place, we are equipped to grow in our reach and impact. Feel free to say “welcome!” to Megan at firstname.lastname@example.org and send over any ideas you’d like to discuss regarding The ALS Association’s work in the North Texas area.
