On Jan. 17, the Columbia County Department of Health welcomed Victoria McGahan as its new public health director. McGahan succeeds Jack Mabb, who retired on Jan. 13.

“I’ve always wanted to help people,” said Director McGahan, who oversees a staff of 40-plus. “That’s why I chose psychology as my undergraduate focus. I have family in the health and human services field in Greene and Columbia counties, so I was fortunate to land an internship with Greene County Public Health, which really introduced me to public and how broad a field it is, as well as its ability to really impact a lot of people.”
