Colleen Haggerty is the new executive director of Sean Humphrey House, a nonprofit adult family home in Bellingham that caters to low-income people living with HIV and AIDS.
Haggerty was recently the program director for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Washington. She is a graduate of Western Washington University.
The new executive takes over for Cassie Hernandez, who led Sean Humphrey House for 10 years.
“We have been fortunate to have such sound leadership under Cassie Hernandez the past 10 years, and she will be genuinely missed,” said Elizabeth Page, president of the nonprofit’s board of directors, in a press release. “I am convinced Colleen Haggerty is an exceptional fit for the role based on her drive, experience, knowledge and extensive skill set.”
