Upstate Cerebral Palsy Administrator Graduates from Health Foundation Leadership Program
Upstate Cerebral Palsy Senior Vice President of Education Services, Nancy Seller, was recently among 36 individuals who graduated from the 2016 Health Foundation for Western & Central New York class of health-leadership fellows. Launched in 2005, the health-leadership fellows program seeks to produce a network of diverse, highly-skilled leaders that will lead collaboratively from both within and outside of their organizations and become advocates for improved health-care delivery, particularly for vulnerable older adults and children impacted by poverty. This intensive 18-month program covers topics including personal leadership, leading change, communicating as a leader and results-based leadership and collaboration.
In her role as Senior Vice President of Education Services at Upstate Cerebral Palsy, Seller provides leadership and supervision for children in the Early Intervention Program, Special Education Preschool Program and School Age Day and Residential Program, overseeing over 300 staff members. Seller is also certified as a School Superintendent and frequently interacts with regulatory agencies including the Office of Children and Family Services, the State Education Department and the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities. Seller is the Secretary of the Board of Directors of the Women’s Fund and serves on the Peri-Natal Network Board as the Chair of the Program Committee.
