As Dasher’s president, I draw upon my experience in the field of health care with expertise in business management, strategy development, process optimization, and performance measurement. In addition to providing overall leadership to the team, I work with businesses and community partners to create strategic alliances. These alliances are designed to remove obstacles to help people live happy, healthy lives. I also provide guidance and oversight to all of our health-related initiatives, such as Community Health Workers and Community Outreach programs. I’ve spent many years in the healthcare industry, so I’m working every day to make Dasher a partner of choice in our healthcare-focused lines of business.
My career has included working for a physician, an insurance company, a subsidiary of the Pennsylvania Medical Society, and a Medicare quality organization. I truly believe this varied background allows me to see an issue from many perspectives and work toward the best outcome for all. I love speaking to organizations about these experiences because it helps me to connect with the audience and provide real-life examples that hit home. I can relate to the challenges they face and provide solutions based on my time in the trenches. I’ve presented topics such as physician coding and documentation, electronic health records, medical practice revenue cycle, chart auditing, medical practice quality initiatives, and physician contract negotiations, with most sessions offering physician education (CME) credits.
When I’m not at Dasher, I love spending time with my family and volunteering as a Trustee for Presbyterian Senior Living. I have a Bachelor of Business Administration, with a major in Management and Organization, and am certified by the American Academy of Professional Coders and the American Health Information Management Association.
