Tina is MEC's environmental health program director.
She has addressed critical environmental issues, promoted active communities and built relationships within the medical field on shared priorities with MEC since May 2010. She uses her law and public policy development expertise to mitigate childhood lead poisoning, provide healthy food access, ensure clean outdoor air, better wellness and expand green, healthy homes.
To supplement her MEC work, the East Lansing resident and Keego Harbor native directs Michigan Alliance for Lead Safe Homes. She helps lead Detroit Green and Healthy Homes Initiative, Detroit Lead Partnership, Detroit Lead Enforcement Work Group, MI Air MI Health, Mid-Michigan Asthma Coalition, Michigan Energy Efficiency for All, Green Health Care Committee, various Healthy Kids Health Michigan groups and a community-supported agriculture workgroup.
She was also appointed to the Michigan Health Endowment Fund Board, where she serves as chair of the Governance Committee, Vice Chair of the Grantmaking Committee on Nutrition and Healthy Lifestyles and Community Health Impact and serves on the Grantmaking Committee on Behavioral Health, Healthy Aging and Special Projects.
Tina has a bachelor’s degree in natural resources from the University of Michigan, a law degree from Wayne State University and a membership with the State Bar of Michigan.
Outside of work, Tina enjoys baking, cooking, knitting, exercising, beautifying her home and taking her three children — Logan, Paige and Gwyn — to Ludington State Park. In the evenings, she enjoys Sanders hot fudge on desserts — it reminds her of visiting a Big Rapids soda fountain and dime store as a child.
