Meet YOUR ALS Association Indiana Chapter Staff

From the first time you call our office, attend a fundraiser or a support group meeting, you come in contact with dedicated and passionate individuals who make up our staff! While each has a unique set of duties, together we have one goal: to serve Hoosiers living with ALS and connect them to quality information, resources and support as they navigate life with this devastating disease.

Connie Simpson, MSW, LCSW, Care Services Coordinator

Where I grew up: Kokomo, Indiana

Where you live now: Westfield, Indiana

Joined the Chapter: 2017

Motivation for working at the Association: I pursued a career at the ALS Association because I was looking to make a change.  I was ready to move away from an in-patient acute care setting to a place where I could still maintain a supportive relationship with patients and families, but really enjoy an out-patient/community.  I am excited to provide a connection between those affected by ALS, their loved ones and the Association as 'wrap around' support!

Hobbies: Bike riding, my family, my two children (Julia who is 19 and a Sophomore, majoring in Nursing at Purdue and Michael who is a Sophomore at Westfield High School), traveling and visiting out of town family. FUN FACT - I am a twin!  We do not have twin names (her name is Jackie) but we are identical!
