| CFH, Monday Letter, Our Alumni

Keisha Cutler, MPH, is the assistant director for the Consortium for Infant and Child Health (CINCH), a health coalition that targets children in Hampton Roads (VA).  She works with the Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk.

“ … I’ve had the wonderful opportunity and challenge to develop and manage the Portsmouth Walks project, work with community and city leaders on local initiatives, and develop two new websites for our organization,” said Cutler. “It has been an incredible experience!”

Prior to her appointment with CINCH, Cutler served as the regional health disparities coordinator for the Northeast North Carolina Partnership for Public Health.  In this position, she developed an action plan to address health disparities in the region and facilitated training for health professionals.

When she’s not protecting the health of children in Hampton Roads, Cutler is honing her speaking skills with Toastmasters International. She joined the organization in 2006 and has no plans to leave any time soon.

“[Toastmasters] afforded me the tremendous opportunity to develop effective communication and valuable leadership skills that have been essential to my career development.”

Ms. Keisha Cutler earned a master of public health degree in health education from the University of South Florida College of Public Health.
