Tieal graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1996 with a degree in Sociology. From there, she began developing her relational skills while serving underprivileged children and people with disabilities. Today, her passion is evident. She knows firsthand the importance of excellent health care and home management of a fragile child. At 27, Tieal gave birth to her son who became medically fragile. A healthy boy now, Max continues to motivate her to advocate on behalf of families who still struggle to keep their children and families healthy under extremely stressful circumstances. Tieal joined the O’Hana family as the parent representative serving on the Board of Directors and was recruited by the organization to become the first paid employee in 2005. Her background in the disability field, her knowledge of reimbursement and state policy, and her own personal experience convinced the Board she was uniquely suited to represent the new organization and to advance the mission. With her leadership the dreams of the organization and espoused ideas were transformed into tangible reality for fragile children by the completion of A Rosie Place; the first specialty hospital in the state of Indiana dedicated and designed to serve medically fragile children. Her success at fundraising the over 10 million dollars to date, without formal training in fundraising or development, speaks to versatility and tenacity of her character. She continues to nurture valuable relationships that are crucial for the support of the charity now and in the future.
