(Jackson, Miss.) – MDHS Inspector General/Deputy Executive Director Hadley Gable-Eisenberger, Esq. has been selected as one of forty-eight standout Mississippians to take part in the 2020 Class of MEC’s Leadership Mississippi.

Upon completion, Eisenberger will join more than 1,300 alumni active in Mississippi business and politics. Participants work together in a training program that combines individual study, group sessions and project experience in using leadership skills.

As Inspector General, Eisenberger serves as a trusted advisor to the Executive Director, providing oversight of the agency’s activities and ensuring the agency operates as good stewards of taxpayer dollars. She, and those under her leadership, are the first line of defense against misconduct, fraud, waste, and abuse.

Prior to assuming her current role in August 2019, Hadley served in multiple roles for the agency, including Senior Attorney and Chief of Staff for the Deputy Executive Director. As Inspector General, she oversees the divisions of Programmatic Quality Control, SNAP Quality Control, Administrative Hearings, Investigations, Claims and Benefit Recovery Unit, and Internal Audit.

Upon completion of her Juris Doctorate degree at Mississippi College School of Law in 2014, Eisenberger worked in private legal practice for four years until joining MDHS in 2017. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Mississippi State University, where she was a four-year letter recipient for the Women’s Soccer Team.

“I am grateful to be chosen to take part in this year’s Leadership Mississippi class,” she said. “I am aware of the esteemed reputation of the program and the exemplary leaders it has produced. I’m excited to learn more about Mississippi and how I can take part in making it an even stronger and better place to live.”

The 2020 Leadership Mississippi sessions begins on Feb. 6 in Jackson. When the class graduates in December 2020, they will have visited Southaven, Mississippi Gulf Coast, Clarksdale and Hattiesburg.
