A New Vienna woman has been appointed as the newest member of the Board of Directors for Mental Health Recovery Services of Warren & Clinton Counties (MHRS), the local board of mental health and addiction services.
Kristin Taulbee has begun a four-year term by the Ohio Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services. Her first term will end in June, 2022.
Taulbee, who currently works as the Clinton County Elderly Services Program coordinator with the Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio, brings a strong sense of advocacy for others, particularly individuals with mental health and addiction issues, which she developed while working as a patient representative with Kettering Medical Center.
