Annette Landesman joined SELF in August 2016 as the coordinator for the Butler County Ohio Healthier Buckeye Grant. The grant was a collaboration of local government, faith-based organizations, universities, non-profit organizations, and social service organizations that provided education, services and programming to assist low-income families in moving out of poverty. Upon completion of the grant assignment, Annette was invited to join SELF’s staff as the Special Programs Manager.
Annette manages SELF’s Employment Success Program team at Ohio Means Jobs as well as the JOBS NOW! community-based program. Under Annette’s supervision SELF is the lead-agency of Soaring to Success, an Employer Resource Network serving Montgomery and Butler county employers.
Prior to joining SELF, Annette assisted other local non-profit organizations after her 30-plus year career in the marketing research industry. Annette volunteers in the community and is a member of C3 – Caring Community Collaborative, and serves as the recording secretary for The Heroes’ Fund and the neighborhood home owners’ association. She is also a peer support person for Cure PSP, an organization dedicated to research, education and support for individuals experiencing a neurological degenerative disease.
