I have been in healthcare for over 30 years, starting out as a clinical laboratory technologist, moved into laboratory management and then spending the majority of my career in hospital administration. My most recent position in a healthcare organization was as an executive with one the largest healthcare systems on the east coast. I have master’s degrees in both medical biology and health care administration. The transition from a clinical role to a purely administrative role is more common than you may think and you will find many nurses, physicians, physical therapists and yes, even medical technologists who now are in executive healthcare positions. Having both clinical and administrative experience has served me well in my career.
Most of my career was working in or consulting to hospitals with a particular interest in operations and process improvement. I became a fellow with the American College of Healthcare Executives (FACHE) in 2008 and have been active in that organization for a number of years. In addition to operations, my professional interests include organization theory, emergency preparedness and new program development.
