In today’s climate of decreasing revenue and pressure to maintain margin, I work with healthcare providers to improve their operating performance while maintaining focus on delivering their mission to the communities that they serve.
Working side by side with clients, I apply my extensive financial and operational experience to my audit and compliance work. I also strive to build positive, productive relationships with all stakeholders ― from boards of directors, executive management teams, and employed and independent physicians; to donors, private equity investors, payers, and policymakers.
Colleagues and clients alike know me as a dynamic leader who energizes teams and has the technical skills to help them best position their organizations for ongoing success in a challenging and increasingly competitive healthcare environment.
I frequently present to industry groups and professional organizations, such as the HFMA Strategic CFO Council, The Central Ohio HFMA Tri-State Organization, Roche Diagnostics Lab Leaders Summit, and the American Association for Clinical Chemistry. Topics have included population health, revenue cycle management, and efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare delivery.
I hold the designation of Chartered Global Management Accountant with the AICPA, and I'm also a member of the Illinois CPA Society, the Chicago Healthcare Executive Forum, the Institute of Internal Auditors, and the Healthcare Financial Management Association, where I am a fellow.
I earned my bachelor’s degree in accountancy from Northern Illinois University and my M.B.A. from the Keller Graduate School of Management in Chicago.
