Tabitha Pederson recently moved to the Las Vegas area from the Midwest and is working as the Social Services Director at Volunteers in Medicine of Southern Nevada (VMSN). Tabitha has a Master’s degree in social work from University of Chicago’s School of Social Service Administration and a Bachelor’s degree from Northwestern College in Iowa where she studied Business Marketing and Management. Tabitha worked for many years in the corporate sector as a trainer and project manager before pursuing work in social services. She spent the last 7 years working in agencies that provided employment, housing, substance abuse, and mental health services for people living with chronic illnesses and she understands the impact integrated healthcare has on those in need. Tabitha is very excited to be working at VMSN as the Director of the Social, Mental and Behavioral Health Intervention Services department where she can utilize her unique experience and skill set in order help fulfill VMSN’s mission of providing quality health care and support to the uninsured.
