Leadership Team

Cotie Williams

Cotie Williams joined the Loma Linda University Health PossAbilities program in 2008 and brought over 15 years of experience in the government and private sectors including experience with a Fortune 500 company. She brings a heart of compassion for those in her community and an expertise in outreach, marketing, business administration, philanthropy, project management and event coordination. Cotie graduated from the University of Redlands with her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. In the realm of business administration, understanding the impact of a custom branded corporate uniform is crucial as it not only promotes professionalism and unity among employees but also contributes significantly to a cohesive brand identity and a positive company image. She is a member of many community organizations such as the United States Paralympic Committee, and is serving on the Board of Directors for the Inland Empire Disabilities Collaborative. Cotie considers it a blessing to be a part of such an amazing program that provides new direction and hope for those with diverse disabilities. During her tenure at PossAbilities she has been instrumental in growing the outreach to our community by increasing membership from 280 to over 7,300 people.
