When I joined ODC I knew that it was an amazing organization with dedicated and passionate people, however the challenges of 2020 proved to me that I am in the perfect place, working along side the most talented and caring people. When challenges and diversity struck in 2020 we did what we always do, put others first, assuring that every person had the supports needed to live their best life, saying ‘yes we will help’ to anyone asking, and most importantly we did it together as one team. I am so honored to be able to lead this organization.”

Strenn’s appointment is part of a two-year executive transition plan, as Pam Ross, previous ODC President/CEO will assume a part-time advisory role to continue to support this transition until her retirement in 2022.
