Planned Parenthood Policy Leader Steps Down

Friday was the last day of work at Planned Parenthood of Northern New England for Jennifer Frizzell. 

 

She's been serving as the organization's Vice President of Public Policy for New Hampshire since 2011. 

Frizzell is leaving to spend more time with her children.  She says she's had many legislative and political victories over her 15 years with the organization. 

She says that support for Planned Parenthood is strong. The organization says it will announcing the incoming Vice President for Public Policy later this month. 

"But what I'm most proud of is to have shepherded in a new era of activism and leadership for reproductive and sexual healthcare," she says. "In the halls of the State House, in the polls, and on the ballot."
