ORLANDO – Dr. Vanessa Toolsie, former First Vice President, has assumed the duties of Orange County Florida NAACP Branch President. Former Branch President Tiffany Hughes has resigned from that position due to other business and personal pursuits. And we bid fond appreciation, thanks, and best wishes to Ms. Hughes in her future endeavors. Likewise, we extend to Dr. Toolsie a warm welcome along with our Branch support and that of our community. Dr. Toolsie received her Business Management degree from the University of Florida, Biological Sciences degree from Florida Atlantic University, and Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the University of Florida. She currently works in healthcare as a Hospital Pharmacist.
She has been an active NAACP member for many years and began serving in the Young Adult Committee of the Orange County FL Branch in 2017, was nominated and became a part of the inaugural class of the national “NAACP-NextGen Leadership Training Program”, completed the program in 2018, and served as the NAACP-NextGen Alumni Council’s Region V Lead from 2019 to 2021. In 2021 she created and currently chairs the Asian and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Taskforce. She states that her goals as an NAACP member and now President include, among others:
- Building the diverse activist membership of the NAACP.
- Taking action for racial justice and against inequalities of all kinds.
- Registering voters to resist systemic bigotry.
- Eliminating marginalized patient healthcare disparities.
