Introduction of the ISCA's New Executive Director
Jessaca Turner Stults
I’m happy to take this opportunity to introduce myself to the Indiana State Chiropractic Association members as the new Executive Director. I’ve had the opportunity to take part in many legislative issues that have positively impacted the care you provide to your patients. It is that work that makes me excited to help preserve, protect and promote your profession now and into the future in the state of Indiana.
I am Jessaca Turner Stults, and I serve as the managing partner of The Capitol Group (formerly TSS Capitol Group) which I founded in 2010. I began my legal career as a deputy prosecutor in Marion County then moved into governmental affairs. In 2006, I worked as the Legislative Director for the Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA), the State’s largest agency. In 2007, I became General Counsel of FSSA, while maintaining my role as Legislative Director for the agency. I advocated before the Indiana General Assembly protecting and monitoring FSSA’s interests and was instrumental in the passage of the Governor’s Healthy Indiana Plan.
The Capitol Group has been working with the ISCA for a number of years and we have a team of dedicated individuals that wake up each day prepared to advocate for our clients, their mission and goals. We are both excited and humbled to have the opportunity to manage your association and advocate for you, especially during a time when healthcare is under the microscope. We have the education, resources, dedication and relationships to educate the Indiana legislative body, Executive Branch, and other stakeholders on the importance of protecting chiropractic care.
I’m pleased to be trusted by your leadership and executive committee and know the future is bright with our partnership. We have exciting things in store for the ISCA and our goal is to become a stronger and more useful organization to enhance your membership interests and legislative presence as the Indiana State Chiropractic Association. We are Stronger Together.
Let’s preserve, protect and promote the chiropractic profession, together.
