CEO, HCR Home Care

Years in current role: 43

What do you enjoy most about your role?

Being able to represent our extraordinary team in many venues where their commitment, caring, and quality are recognized is an honor.

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

Helping our staff dealing with the exceeding stress of being an essential worker in this pandemic has been a focus of my leadership.

What do you see as the biggest changes in the health care industry in the next 3-5 years?

Health care will continue to move from facility-based to community-based care which is best able to deal with population health.

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

HCR Cares because of their innovation and ground breaking work related to fostering independence. Garth Fagan Dance because they are leaders and educators in the dance world, and an under-appreciated community asset. The Strong National Museum of Play because of how it’s evolved from Margaret Strong’s generous gift to our community. The Susan B. Anthony House and Museum because of the invaluable collection of Anthony museum pieces.

What are you most looking forward to doing as COVID restrictions ease?

I look forward to resuming travel.
