President, Unity Hospital, Rochester Regional Health

Years in current role: 8

What do you enjoy most about your role?

Unity is a special place, with outstanding team members who come to work each day with the intention of doing their absolute best for our patients and their partners in care. I am so fortunate to work with trusted colleagues that share an unwavering commitment to quality and safety. Supporting the amazing Unity and Rochester Regional Health team and nurturing our collaborative culture are two of the things I enjoy most about my role.

What has been the biggest challenge you’ve dealt with over the past year?

Trying to help our team members manage the incredible demands of their work in the face of the stress and challenges the pandemic created in their personal lives. We asked so much of our team and I am so grateful for how selflessly they responded — again and again — to ever-changing needs and requirements.

What community organizations do you support as a volunteer and why?

I am a member of the Board of Trustees for the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of Rochester. Inclusive of lodging and related support they provide to families whose children are receiving medical care, RMHC’s impactful health and wellness programs and community partnerships have a significant and lasting impact.
