Children's Title: Senior Vice President/Chief Strategy Officer

Academic Title: Professor

"I have spent my career at Children's growing our programs and promoting improved access to care. When I arrived 15 years ago, Children's provided care at only a few locations. I am very proud of the fact that we now have a robust regional network that provides care to children and families closer to home at multiple sites across several states. The role of Senior Vice President, Chief Strategy Officer blends my interests in medicine and business. As part of this role, I oversee the process that we use to develop and implement our strategic plan. The plan is essentially a business roadmap to help guide us today and into the future toward our aspirations to be the best pediatric hospital."
