My various roles have allowed me to develop skills and gain experiences which have made me the healthcare leader I am today. My greatest passion is leading teams who positively impact and improve the health status of vulnerable populations.

Compassionate Healthcare Advocate

My background includes leadership roles in hospital administration, health plan operations, and Medicare, Medicaid, and those requiring long-term care.

One of my key achievements has been developing a clinical care model that supported high-risk populations with home-based Palliative care and Hospice services.

Devoted to exploring how healthcare disparities and social determinants play a role in individuals’ health, I’m always open to exploring new approaches to solve the healthcare problems of today.

Generous Giver

Regardless of what I’m working on, I always give my best. Unafraid of tackling difficult work, I’m skilled at turning around underperforming organizations. Organizations and companies facing challenges with clients, employees, or other stakeholders benefit from my strategic and holistic approach for addressing pressing concerns.

Brave And Authentic

Much of my career, I’ve worked with vulnerable populations – there I can make a difference. In today’s world, sometimes you have to stand up and be the voice for those who are unable or cannot speak for themselves. I am that person who is unafraid to speak out for others and go the extra mile to treat people with respect.

Action Taker

The stability of every organization is only as good as its talent and employees. Communication is key to connecting with all employees.

As the healthcare industry continues to handle issues associated with the COVID-19 crisis, there is a growing need to acknowledge and manage mental and behavioral health in organizations.

My unique experience places me in a position to help healthcare organizations who need a proactive agent of change. I hope to bring forth my knowledge, energy, and expertise to the table by serving as a corporate board member.
