The Indiana Department of Child Services (DCS) has appointed Alexys Vosmeier the new local office director for the DCS Huntington County office.

In her new role, Vosmeier will set goals and objectives for child welfare management helping to ensure children are protected from abuse or neglect. In addition, she will oversee a staff of 18 while also handling general office operations.

“Alexys’ first-hand experience in the field and as a supervisor has given her the needed skills to lead her team,” said Jane Bisbee, DCS’ deputy director of field operations.

“We are pleased to have her in this new role.”

Vosmeier is a Fort Wayne native.

In 2007, Vosmeier began her DCS career as a family case manager working in assessments and permanency in Huntington County. She remained in that office until her promotion to Allen County Assessment Supervisor in March 2015. She remained in that position until her appointment to Huntington County local office director.

“It’s nice to come back,” said Vosmeier of returning to the county. “We have really good community relationships here. Our community providers are pretty connected. So, it is nice to come back to a smaller community.”

In 2004, Vosmeier received her Bachelor of Science in criminal justice from Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne. In 2007, she earned her Master of Business Management from Indiana Wesleyan University Fort Wayne.

She began her new duties Dec. 7.

The DCS Huntington County office is located at 2806 Theater Ave., Suite C, in Huntington.
