Contoocook, N.H. – NFI North is pleased to announce that Terry Lochhead, has been elected to its Board of Directors. Lochhead worked as a reporter for New Hampshire Public Radio, then spent almost a decade building coalitions to lobby the NH Legislature and raise public awareness about the needs of vulnerable children.
“We are very pleased to welcome Terry Lochhead to NFI North’s Board of Directors. Her experience as an advocate for human services and her commitment to sound public policy for the citizens we serve is an excellent addition to our Board,” says Dr. Paul Dann, NFI North’s Executive Director. “We look forward to the added perspective Lochhead will bring.”
When NH Governor Jeanne Shaheen’s press secretary took a 3-month leave in 1998, Terry took over his duties at the State House. Over many years, she helped national organizations advocate for expanded access to long term care, children’s health, Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security, and quality jobs for direct care workers. She is now retired and lives in Brownfield, Maine.
