The end of 2012 and beginning of 2013 bring are bringing a lot of change to the Programs department at NITA. We are excited to announce the addition of a new program coordinator on our team and new roles for existing staff.
Terre Rushton has recently been appointed Associate Executive Director of Programs. All programs, including Custom, Public Service, International, and Public Programs will now be handled under one central operation. Terre has taught for NITA since 1982 and has taught over 200 programs for NITA. She was the director of the National program for five years, and the director of custom programs for several years before adding public service programs to her task list two years ago. She knows most of the public program directors personally, has taught public programs, has attended program director meetings, and is eager to learn more about the differences and similarities in NITA’s programming. She is the perfect asset to the staff and program directors in all of our programs, and will help revamp teaching and evaluation methods and fine-tune best practices.
Megan Melich is approaching her one-year anniversary at NITA and will now take on the role of Lead Coordinator in the Public Program Department. She will continue to coordinate programs and teacher training on the West Coast, along with more supervisory responsibilities. She has shown amazing professionalism, efficiency, and teamwork in her short time here at NITA. With a B.A. from the University of Oregon, she comes to us with a background in Project Management and non-profit work for a small local finance company.
Valeria O’Leary is the newest member of the NITA programs team. She will be coordinating all East Coast programs. Valeria, who goes by Va, is originally from Brazil. Before making her way to Colorado she lived in Connecticut for ten years with her husband Tom, and worked at Cartus Corporation in their accounts payable department, and also at Crown Relocation as an expense analyst. After graduating from CU Boulder she interned at the Boulder County Probation Department as a probation officer and interpreter, since she speaks Portuguese and Spanish. Following that, she worked as a receptionist at the Law Office of Hurth, Sisk, and Blakemore. She is excited for her career change with NITA.

We are again offering 8 communication programs, 33 deposition skills programs (9 of which will be offered online), 17 trial skills programs, 2 teacher training, and 3 expert witness deposition skills.
