Snyder replaces Troha as UW executive director

A new executive director started her position at the United Way of Boone County last week, as the agency is gearing up to celebrate last year’s fundraising campaign.

Christie Snyder officially started her new position Monday, taking the place of former executive director Jill Troha, who is now working for the United Way of Hamilton County.

Troha will introduce Snyder at the annual campaign celebration at 8 a.m. Wednesday, April 18, at Boone Meadow School, to which the public is invited.

“We’ll introduce Christie while we celebrate last year’s successes, and look forward to future successes for the next year under her new direction,” Troha said.

Troha took a new job as the Youth as Resources and volunteer engagement coordinator for the Hamilton County office after she and her husband moved to Fishers last fall. She had been commuting to Lebanon since then, and was even planning on staying another year when saw the Hamilton County opening.

“I thought, ‘This must be meant to be,’” she said. “It’s a nice way to get connected to my new community.”

Snyder is also excited to get connected to her new community — and also her old community. She grew up near Zionsville and moved away at age 26. Her husband’s job transferred them to places like Kansas and Florida, before ending up in Dayton, Ohio. They recently moved from Dayton back to Zionsville, she said. And she still has a lot of family in the area.

“It’s fun to know I will get acclimated back to the community again,” she said. “It’s great to be back home.”

Much of Snyder’s career background is in early childhood education, but she most recently worked as a professional volunteer coach for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. She has a bachelor’s degree in marketing and management from Indiana University.
