Golden House is excited to announce the appointment of their new Executive Director, Cheeia Lo.
Cheeia has been with Golden House for 4 years and has 11 years of experience working in the field of domestic violence and sexual assault. Her many years of experience in the field fuel her passion for promoting the safety and resiliency of survivors.
Cheeia is the first Hmong executive director named by a mainstream domestic violence program in Wisconsin. Her work to uplift the Hmong community began in 2009 at the Family Center in Wisconsin Rapids where she was a part-time Hmong Youth Specialist. While serving in that position, she started domestic violence and sexual assault groups that empowered both Hmong youth and adult women.
Cheeia relies on her faith to provide strength and offer a distinctive perspective on leading. Her favorite things about Golden House are working with a team that is so passionate about fulfilling our mission of providing hope and healing to victims as well as that Golden House is viewed as a leader in our state for using innovative ways to help victims. A fun fact about Cheeia is that she loves to travel and, most recently, visited Acadia National Park in Maine!
Welcome to your new role, Cheeia!
