Flowers Aren’t the Only Thing Growing This Spring

Our staff is, too. PAEA is pleased to introduce the two newest members of our team.

Hollie Sleeseman, MA
Hollie recently joined PAEA as our new program manager of educational programming. In this role, she is part of the team responsible for the development and execution of the PAEA Education Forum. Prior to joining PAEA, Hollie served as the project manager for conference programming and volunteer engagement at the Association of American Medical Colleges.

Hollie earned her bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Southern Mississippi, followed by a master’s degree in political campaign management from the University of Florida (Go Gators!). In her free time, Hollie enjoys hiking, practicing yoga, exploring local wineries, and dreaming up her next vacation.


Eleadah Clack, MA
Eleadah has taken on the newly created position of project manager of research programs and evaluations. In this role, she will oversee evaluations and grant and fellowship opportunities. She previously worked in nonprofit fundraising and development, writing appeals to increase funding for local causes.

Eleadah earned her master’s degree in sociology from St. John’s University, where as a writing fellow at the university’s writing center, she trained faculty and first-year students to improve writing across the chemistry department curriculum. A published author on Amazon, Eleadah spends as much free time as she can reading or writing about justice and social change. She takes special pride in giving back to youth programs, where she teaches about writing and literacy, social justice, and advocacy. In her spare time, Eleadah enjoys playing competitive sports, crafting, and being highly organized. She likes to take long drives with her wife on the weekends and journals about everything.
