Ingrid Fonseca and Frania Mendoza, both bilingual (Spanish/English) enrollment specialists, are leaving the Washtenaw Health Plan to pursue their passions. The WHP staff (and clients) are very sad to see them go but are so grateful for their expertise, knowledge and care they both shared with us.
Ingrid Fonseca will be taking her side business to the next level. Ingrid’s incredible style, clothing, and jewelry put the rest of us WHP staffers to shame. Originally from Ecuador, Ingrid also lived in Japan and Colombia developing her international style. Ingrid sells both handmade (by her!) and vintage jewelry along with hand-selected clothes with an eco-bohemian style. Good luck!
Frania Mendoza Lua is leaving us for the Windy City. After getting her MSW at the University of Michigan, Frania has been splitting her time on both applied work and research. She has been working with the WHP; doing research, writing grants and developing a smartphone app for a UM research project; and working with Latino/a adolescents in Washtenaw County. This led Frania to decide to pursue a PhD! Frania has been accepted into the University of Chicago’s PhD program at the School of Social Service Administration (with funding to support her studies!). Before letting the wind whip her hair around in Chicago, Frania will be spending part of the summer at a super statistics program at the ICPSR at UM. As if all this was not enough--she recently got engaged.
Ingrid and Frania, let’s not say farewell, but rather—good luck in your coming adventures!
Come Work With Us!
