Music Health Alliance (MHA) has announced the promotion of four team members who have worked to support the physical and mental health needs of America’s music community over the last year.
Bonita Allen has been promoted to senior director of Group Health & Advocacy.
Nikki Black has been promoted to senior director of Advocacy, Insurance, & Policy.
Erin Lancaster has been promoted to manager of Client & Advocate Support.
Jackie Proffit has been promoted to manager of Advocacy & Insurance.
The newly elevated staff, along with Founder and CEO Tatum Allsep, COO and Certified Senior Advisor Shelia Shipley Biddy, Sr. Director of Advocacy & Insurance Taylor McLeod, and Project Manager Colleen Hoagland, will continue to assist over 15,000 music industry professionals with their healthcare needs, ranging from assistance with medical bills or physical and mental health guidance that includes finding doctors or prescription medicine, finding financial grants while recovering from a serious health issue, affordable health insurance, or answers to Medicare questions.
In addition to these promotions, MHA has also added Suzanne Berg and Suzanne Spooner-Faulk to their all female, 10-person team.
Having previously worked in marketing and promotions at Elektra Records, Verve Records, and iHeart Media, Berg joins as manager of Advocacy & Insurance. Meanwhile, with an extensive background in music and theater, including stops at Tom-Leis music publishing, rpm management, CDX, and the Tennessee Arts Commission, Spooner-Faulk has come on board as financial administrator and executive assistant to Shipley Biddy.
“I am proud to see how our team has responded during this pandemic that has shaken our musical foundation,” says Shipley Biddy. “As the health needs of our industry increase, so does the need for personnel who can address those issues. Suzanne Berg and Suzanne Spooner-Faulk both have unique skills and the attitude needed to support their particular responsibilities at MHA. Spooner-Faulk’s attention to detail and organizational skills strengthen our admin department. Berg’s caring heart and outgoing personality and music industry experience provide the perfect foundation for a new advocate. They are a perfect fit for our MHA family.”
