  35. 35. That is just the title on my business card - I heard a friend use a term and I would say it more accurately describes my role: accidentalAnnette Atchison Brochowski advocate. Growing up, I never envisioned beingCo-Founder - Director, part of anything like this. Having a child diagnosed with cerebral palsy, I never thoughtAcquisitions Manager about doing more. Experiencing the loss of my daughter Meghan Joy, I grieved for what would never be. But never isn’t so long after all. Now, I am part of this wonderful organization. An organization that does more, fulfills needs where other resources fall short. And I am a witness to her Joy living on – in each person participating in our events, in every contributor supporting the Foundation, and in the face of every child we are able to help. In my professional life, I am the Information Manager at the Ohio State Medical Association. Responsible for overseeing data integrity and information management as well as fulfilling inquiries from members made via phone, fax, mail and email. Data management, consistency and reporting, staff training, and contributing in the social media aspects of the OSMA. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from The Ohio State University. Nature, fishing, photography, sewing, genealogy, games, cooking and crafts are things I enjoy when I find a spare minute or two.
  36. 36. I have 3 daughters. That’s not what I say when folks ask because it’s awkward and uncomfortable for them sometimes. RunningFounder – Director: Jim Brochowski The MJB Foundation is my way of keeping alive the legacy of my daughter Meghan Joy. This isn’t the life’s work I would have guessed for myself, but it is a mission I embrace, a position I am proud to hold. I’m Meghan Joy’s Daddy, but I’m also very proud of Kailey and Delaney. Being there for all of my children, in whatever capacity, is my biggest priority. When I’m not running The MJB Foundation I play ice hockey and golf, spend time in the social media space blogging at { and working (sometimes), on a number of ongoing projects around my house. I’m also currently the treasurer for the Westland Band Boosters. (I had some spare time I needed to fill.) My day-to-day is spent at the Columbus library working in customer service. In 26 years I’ve done everything from putting away books, to scanning microfilm, teaching computer classes, and a number of jobs in between. My secret dream is to retire one day and run The MJB Foundation full time. In the meantime I’m just going to keep being the best Daddy I can be.
