Ms. Reynolds has been developing and implementing effective public health programs in states and localities, and at CDC, for more than 23 years. Most recently she was the Deputy Branch Chief for the Community Guide Branch. Maryan began her public health career in Chicago and later Houston, where she intervened on the front lines to halt the spread of sexually-transmitted diseases and HIV. In 1997, Ms. Reynolds’ career brought her to Georgia, where she worked as a public health advisor for the Fulton County STD/HIV Department and was responsible for training and guiding the department’s disease-intervention specialists. Maryan came to CDC headquarters in 1998 as deputy chief of the State Branch in the Division of Applied Public Health Training, in what was then the Epidemiology Program Office (EPO). There, she conducted short- and long-range planning; coordinated program operations; and collaborated with state, local, and tribal partners to build the public health system’s epidemiologic capacity. She also expanded her expertise in budgeting, personnel, recruitment, contracts, grants, cooperative agreements, and other management processes. From 2004 through 2009 Maryan focused her program planning and communications skills on CDC’s efforts to build and strengthen the public health workforce. As the public health advisor in OWCD’s Program Planning and Communications Development unit, she assisted with OWCD’s stand up and transformation, coordinated strategic planning; analyzed workforce legislation; and coordinated, developed and disseminated workforce-development materials requested by Congress, the Department of Health and Human Services, CDC’s partners, the media, and OWCD’s constituents.
