Staff and Volunteers

Our volunteers and staff are the backbone of our organization.


Angie Fitzpatrick, Executive Director of Baby Blues Connection, has been with the organization since 2006. Initially working as a volunteer Mom-to-Mom group facilitator and phone support person, she was then hired as the Program Coordinator. She was promoted to Program Director in 2008 and brings enormous energy, commitment, and organizational skills to the position. Promoted again in 2015, Angie is now Executive Director of Baby Blues Connection.

Angie is the mom of two children, a boy and a girl, and has experienced pregnancy and postpartum depression and anxiety. When she speaks to a mom calling the Baby Blues Connection phone line she truly means it when she says “I understand.”

Lisa Coss, Program Coordinator for Baby Blues Connection joined our staff in 2011, as Administrative Assistant. A volunteer for many years, Lisa first served BBC as an email support person and emailed/mailed our mom packets. Lisa works on our database, organizes all volunteer data, updates the webpage and mails all outreach materials. She was promoted to Program Coordinator in 2015, and is expanding her presence and responsibilities within the organization.

Lisa experienced severe depression and anxiety after an unplanned c-section in 2007. She attended our mom-to-mom support group and found a combination of therapies and peer support to be instrumental in her recovery.

Many thanks to our fabulous volunteers!
