LeadingAge Florida, Florida’s only association representing the entire continuum of care for older adults, announced today the promotion of Dawn Jiménez to Vice President of Operations.
Ms. Jiménez joined LeadingAge Florida nearly four years ago as its Executive Operations Manager. In her new role, she is responsible for overseeing the association’s overall operations, as well as its continuing professional education and events, group purchasing, and event exhibits and sponsorships.
“Dawn has been a tremendous asset to me and to our association,” said Steve Bahmer, LeadingAge Florida President and CEO. “I’m very excited to have her join our leadership team. She is a terrific problem-solver, communicator and leader, and she will serve our members exceptionally well.”
Jiménez is a native of the San Francisco area, where she began her career in finance with the Ford Motor Company. She later moved up quickly at Triad Systems Corporation (now Epicor), where she was a National Account Manager and the Western Area Education Manager.
A graduate of St. Mary’s College in California, Jiménez earned a degree in Industrial and Organizational Psychology and was a member of the college’s first National Champion women’s soccer team. She lives in Tallahassee with her two daughters and her husband, Dr. Alexander Jiménez, an orchestral conductor and professor in the College of Music at Florida State University.
Established in 1963 as a Florida not-for-profit corporation, LeadingAge Florida is committed to assisting its members in achieving excellence as providers, businesses and employers. The Association provides up-to-date regulatory information, a wide variety of educational opportunities, representation before the Legislature and government agencies, group purchasing services, and opportunities for networking with peers.
