Green Hill Therapy Announces New Executive Director May 18th, 2015

LOUISVILLE, KY – May 18, 2015 – The Green Hill Therapy Board of Directors is pleased to announce Lee Ann Massey-Weinberg, MBA, MSHA, as its new Executive Director. As the Executive Director of Green Hill Therapy, Massey-Weinberg will lead a team of 18 staff members and 83 active volunteers in providing physical and occupational therapy, supplemented with hippotherapy (horse therapy) and aquatherapy, to achieve meaningful results in over 250 children confronting Autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, and other medical challenges each year.

“In our 15th year of operation, Green Hill needs a leader who has a vision for how our organization can build upon our past successes to further impact children with special needs in our community. Lee Ann brings powerful operations experience to the table, has a commitment to our mission and the capacity to strategically guide our organization forward,” says G. Henry Hunt, President of the Green Hill Therapy Board.

Massey-Weinberg has spent the last decade building and administering a surgery center in Jeffersonville, Indiana and in administration roles at three hospitals in Kentucky and Alabama. Her community involvement has included serving on the boards of Louisville’s Food Literacy Project and Birmingham’s Ronald McDonald House Young Leadership Board, as well as volunteering at the Center for Women and Families in Louisville.

Massey-Weinberg studied English at Birmingham-Southern College and was inducted into their Sports Hall of Fame for Women’s Tennis. She received her M.B.A. and M.S.H.A. from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

“I am excited about my new role at Green Hill Therapy as this position honors my experience and provides an opportunity to increase my community engagement,” shared Massey-Weinberg. “I look forward to developing rich and meaningful relationships with all of Green Hill’s stakeholders – children with special needs, their families, staff members, volunteers, donors and community partners.”

Green Hill Therapy provides intervention services to children in need, regardless of their ability to pay. To achieve this mission, Massey-Weinberg will drive efforts to raise over $400,000 annually from grants, corporate and individual donations, and Green Hill’s signature fundraising event – Hoe Down on the Hill, scheduled for September 19, 2015.

Green Hill Therapy, established in 2000, integrates hippotherapy into therapy sessions year round at its indoor riding facility located at 1410 Long Run Road. Green Hill Therapy’s licensed therapists also provide aquatherapy to pediatric clients at the state-of-the-art Kay & Jim Morrissey Advanced Therapy Center at Home of the Innocents located at 1100 East Market Street. Green Hill Therapy is a nonprofit charity exempt from federal income taxes under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Green Hill Therapy is an equal opportunity provider.

Green Hill Therapy Awarded YWC Grant May 15th, 2015

The Younger Woman’s Club of Louisville has awarded Green Hill Therapy $3,640.00. This funding creates a scholarship for one child in need to receive therapy sessions for the remainder of 2015 free of charge. This timely award provides a means for the recipient to continue in the Green Hill Therapy program, as the maximum number of therapy sessions covered annually by the family’s private insurance has recently been exceeded. Green Hill Therapy relies on the continued support of community partners, such as the Younger Woman’s Club of Louisville, to achieve its mission of providing therapy to children in need, regardless of their ability to pay.

Note from Green Hill Executive Director March 30th, 2015

Dear Friends,

As many of you know, I have recently accepted a position with another organization and will be leaving Green Hill on April 10th.

While I am excited about this new chapter of my career, I will greatly miss all of you who help make Green Hill such a special place. For the past seven years, it has been a privilege to see so many amazing children work so hard and make so much progress. It has been an honor to work with a staff and group of volunteers that are so immensely talented and devoted to the children we serve.

Thank you so much for making my time at Green Hill a truly enjoyable one. The Board of Directors has begun a search for my successor and I am certain they will find a talented individual to lead Green Hill into the future. I am excited to see Green Hill continue to grow and develop and will continue to be a passionate supporter.

My very best wishes for the future go out to each and every one of you.

Yours Sincerely,

Gregory Nielsen
Executive Director
