MOA Executive Director Angela Cole Westhoff Transitions Into Consulting Role


Angela Cole Westhoff will be moving into a consultant role for the Maine Osteopathic Association (MOA) in early April. Ms. Westhoff has more than 16 years of experience managing nonprofits in health care and public health in Maine and has been with the MOA for nearly nine years. Angela recently began her own consulting business, Cole Westhoff Consulting, LLC. She will continue to lead strategic planning efforts for the MOA and serve as the lead spokesperson/ lobbyist.

Ms. Westhoff earned both her bachelor's and master's degrees in communication with concentrations in health communication and public relations from the University of Maine at Orono.

The History of Osteopathic Medicine:

Osteopathic medicine is a distinctive form of medical care founded on the philosophy that all body systems are interrelated and dependent upon one another for good health. This philosophy was developed in 1874 by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, who pioneered the concept of "wellness" and recognized the importance of treating illness within the context of the whole body. Read More
