ICHP Welcomes New Communications Manager, Leann Nelson

Hello I am your new Communications Manager for ICHP. I started in the position on February 9th and hit the ground running with an issue of KeePosted and Pharmacy Tech Topics™ due shortly after my arrival!

You may have seen me travelling with a group of students on Legislative Day 2017 snapping photos under the dome as well as at the ICHP/MSHP Spring Meeting March 30 - April 1. I was honored to be a part of these exciting events!

My professional experience includes 16 years in graphic design, event planning, and communications in the real estate industry as marketing coordinator and social media specialist for the area’s largest broker. In addition, I worked briefly as a property manager and marketing associate for a local builder. I left the real estate industry and spent a few years as an executive administrative assistant, board secretary and IT manager for the AHL Rockford IceHogs at the arena in downtown Rockford.

I am a life-long resident of the Rockford, IL area and mother to one teenage boy. We have two adopted dogs. My son and I enjoy attending local concerts, bowling, dining out and trips to Chicago to see the Blackhawks play. During my free time, I like to sing karaoke as well as volunteer as an adult mentor for young ladies in a local recovery home.

I am learning a great deal in my first weeks here and look forward to the challenges of this new position. I plan to put my talent and experience to good use for ICHP and all of its members. Connect with me here: or email me anytime at
