Fred Nystrom has been named executive director of Life Enrichment Options, a community-based nonprofit that advocates for and assists individuals with developmental disabilities.
Nystrom has an extensive background in media and fundraising with both nonprofit organizations and businesses.
He is very involved in the Issaquah community, serving previously as a board member for the Issaquah Chamber of Commerce and the Issaquah Schools Foundation.
During his 30 years of involvement with the Rotary Club of Issaquah, Nystrom has held club and district positions, and has been an ardent supporter of LEO’s efforts in the community, especially with the yearly Challenge Series Races that are sponsored by the Rotary.
The addition of an executive director will allow LEO to create greater organizational structure and increase its ability to serve its clients. The organization was founded 25 years ago, when five moms of children with disabilities came together with the purpose of creating opportunities for their children to fully participate in the community.
LEO has grown to support those with disabilities in many areas including recreation, employment, parent/caregiver education and, most importantly, housing. Learn more about LEO here.
