2021 GCATD Board of Directors Nominees

Kristie Schoonover | President

Kristie started her career in marketing operations at a start-up promotional marketing agency. As the company grew over the years so did their need to focus on learning and development. Kristie was able to grow her role into one that tackled everything from new hire onboarding to mentor programs to leadership development and succession planning. Being the only one focused on L&D, she joined GCATD to ensure she was staying current with best practices. When asked about the opportunity to serve as President for our Chapter:

“I have enjoyed being active with GCATD. Participating in SIGs led me to volunteering as Director of Communication and then VP of Marketing and Communication. I want to lead a Board that continues to provide value and growth opportunities for our members, as well as be recognized nationally for our successes.”

Heidi Lattire | VP, Marketing & Communication 

After 15 years in construction accounting, Heidi realized she liked people much more than numbers and began working towards a transition to training & development. She joined GCATD in January 2020, as others suggested it would be a great opportunity to network and learn more about the trade. Heidi jumped in to serve as a volunteer with the Marketing Committee and has since joined Cloverleaf (in Covington) as a Customer Success Specialist. As she puts it, the scary leap to change careers has been everything she prayed for! When asked about the potential role of VP, Marketing, Heidi shared:

“I could not be happier with the decision I made to join this training and development community and now I want to give back in any way I can. My hope is that in this role I can get the word out about how wonderful this community is and how amazing all the resources are as well. My goal is to get some energy and excitement behind what GCATD can offer so that others see the benefit of this community as well.”

Bill Jamison | VP, Membership

A native Cincinnatian, Bill is a Sr. Instructional Designer with Health Carousel. He has been in the Talent Development space for 15 years with a focus on instructional design and training delivery - from classroom, to eLearning, and everything in-between. Bill has a passion and drive for helping others grow into the best version of their professional self and ensure participants learn in personalized way to drive their development. When asked about his interest in the VP, Membership, he shared:

“GCATD has been an essential resource for me at every stage of my career. As the VP of Membership, I want to help energize and drive growth in our professional community to help our current members, and the next generation of talent professionals, experience the value that this organization provides.”

Yvonne Dunphe | Director, Communications*

Yvonne has a diverse background ranging from hospitality to social services, not for profit to government, and have had aspects of marketing in each of her roles. She currently serves as the Volunteer Coordinator at Five Rivers MetroParks and as a Horticulture Consultant for Washington Township. She also manages the marketing and outreach for the orchid business she runs with her husband - Oakwood Orchids. When asked about the opportunity to serve with GCATD, she shared:

“I am excited about becoming more actively involved with GCATD. I became acquainted with GCTAD through one of my colleagues in HR over 8 years ago, have benefited from various trainings and felt it was my turn to give back. I am hoping to share my experience and skills, while continuing to learn from the many experts in this association. Thank you for the opportunity!”
