Lori Chovanak, MN, APRN, Chief Executive Officer of Ohio Nurses Association
I joined the Ohio Nurses Association in September 2014 as the Chief Executive Officer. I arrived to Ohio from Helena, Montana where I was the Executive Director of Montana Nurses Association, a practicing RN in Cardiac Cath Lab and Special Procedures. My passion for the profession of nursing is evidenced by my long time active involvement in our professional organization, activism in organizing members, negotiating employment contracts, representing members in my previous work settings, and promotion of advancing the profession through efforts at the state and national level. I bring energy and an intrinsic drive to promote and advance professional nursing in Ohio and nationally. I am a mother of two great kids. In my free time you will most likely find me running, biking, skiing, snowshoeing, and spending time with my family and friends.
