Worksafe Welcomes New Staff
This summer we are thrilled to welcome Joan Uhlig to the Worksafe team! As the new Administrative & Accounting Assistant, Joan will help keep our systems on track and provide crucial support to our programs and campaigns.
Joan comes to Worksafe with more than 20 years of experience doing bookkeeping and administrative work for nonprofits and small businesses. She has worn many hats throughout her career and enjoys the challenge of helping small organizations build internal capacity. Most recently, she put her organizational and people skills to good use working for a nonprofit housing organization that supports people with developmental disabilities and other special needs.
Born and raised in the East Bay, Joan is a firm believer in the power of giving back to her community and is a long-standing volunteer with local schools and programs. When not working she enjoys doing genealogical research and hiking with her family. Joan believes strongly in people being treated fairly, equitably, and with respect. She is proud to be a part of an organization that champions the right to work in a safe and healthy environment. Welcome aboard, Joan!
