Kelly L. Wilson Dubuisson PhD, MCHES®Treasurer
Kelly Wilson, PhD, MCHES® is proud to sit on the Board of Directors and serve as Treasurer for FAHE. As an experienced educator and evaluator, Kelly is responsible for working with health education specialists in community and school health. Prior to joining the faculty at Texas A&M University in College Station, Kelly served as a faculty member and program Coordinator within the Department of Health and Human Performance at Texas State University-San Marcos. Kelly began her career working with school and community-based physical activity programs for youth (fun fact: during her master’s degree, she completed a summer internship at AAHE in their Reston, VA offices giving her the opportunity to network and work with leaders in Health Education). She transitioned her emphasis and began focusing her work with pregnant and parenting adolescents. She has been responsible for providing strategic leadership and oversight of sexuality education training, implementation, and evaluation. Another professional shift allowed her to embrace innovation in adolescent health – with a frame around systems approaches and design thinking to influence innovative program development.
Kelly has served in multiple leadership roles for the health education discipline including service from local to international levels. She has served on the Board of Commissioners for the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing and received Fellow status of the American School Health Association. She recently completed the 6-year cycle of the Eta Sigma Gamma presidential rotation (e.g., Vice President, President, Past President) and is the Interim Editor for The Health Educator. She and her family recently acquired a mini-farm outside of College Station. As someone who enjoys challenges, she is embracing agri-tainment and learning about sustainable living! Her favorite past-time remains traveling to beaches and/or hiking destinations.
