The Arizona Commission for the Deaf and the Hard of Hearing (ACDHH) is pleased to announce Noneshi Anderson as the organization’s information and referral coordinator. In her role, Anderson will serve as the first point-of-contact with the public, manage the social media outlets as well as provide information about services and resources available through ACDHH along with other local, state and national resources. Anderson had been serving in a similar role with ACDHH on a volunteer basis since 2013.
“After seeing Noneshi’s many contributions as a volunteer, we are pleased to have her as a full-time member of our team,” said Carmen Green, deputy director of the Arizona Commission for the Deaf and the Hard of Hearing. “Her enthusiasm and excellent customer service have proven to be very valuable.”
Anderson’s previous experience includes customer service roles in various healthcare and contracting offices.

Trade Technical College in September 2008 as well as her certificate in medical billing and coding from Everest College in November 2009. She is currently a student in the Phoenix College Interpreter Training Program.
