The National Alliance for Caregiving (NAC) announced the appointments of Antoinette ‘Toni’ Gingerelli as its Associate Director of Policy and Advocacy, Stephanie Monroe as a senior advisor on paid family and medical leave, and Guidehouse as an outside advisor on public sector policy engagement.

“These additions will greatly expand NAC’s capacity to shape public policy in support of the health and well-being of America’s 53 million family caregivers” said Jason Resendez, President and CEO of NAC. “Never before have family caregivers been more visible in our society, and we are committed to turning this visibility into meaningful policy change to build health, wealth, and equity for family caregivers.”

Toni brings a wealth of experience at the intersections of gender equity, health policy, and coalition building. Prior to NAC, she served as Chief of Staff for New Jersey State Senator Vin Gopal where she oversaw office operations, communications, and legislation. In this role, she assisted in drafting, analyzing, and passing a variety of bills related to healthcare, labor, and education. Prior to the Senator’s Office, Toni served as Deputy Director of RepresentWomen where she oversaw the development of the organization’s flagship research reports.

A veteran political strategist, Stephanie Monroe served as Chief Counsel for the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions under the Chairmanship of Senator Judd Gregg, and, for more than a decade was chief counsel and staff director for the Senate Subcommittee on Children and Families under the Chairmanship of former Senator Dan Coats.

Led by the honorable Lance Robertson, former U.S. Assistant Secretary for Aging and Administrator for the Administration for Community Living, Guidehouse will provide strategic advice and capacity to NAC’s efforts to mobilize federal and state action in support of family caregivers through the nation’s first-ever National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers.

A leader in holistic healthcare advisory, digital, and managed services, Guidehouse is focused on advancing comprehensive person-centered programs, such as at-home care for aging adults, to support family caregivers in keeping their loved ones healthy and well.

These additions are part of a strategic plan to translate NAC’s robust research on the impacts of caregiving on American families and communities into policy change that helps family caregivers thrive.
