I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to become a part of the impactful work that MVC began a decade ago. Joining a team that is so committed to improving healthcare quality across Michigan has renewed my passion for driving change to achieve equity in healthcare.
I began my career in healthcare as a nurse over 21 years ago. I have worked as a clinical nurse in the adult and pediatric emergency departments, labor and delivery, and ambulatory care. In 2018, I earned my Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) from the University of Michigan before transitioning into the quality improvement realm of healthcare in 2019 as a site engagement coordinator for the Obstetrics Initiative (OBI). During my time with OBI, I supported hospital quality improvement teams by applying data analytics to support the implementation and sustainability of health equity initiatives. I believe that healthcare cannot achieve optimal quality without equity in service delivery.
In my time between OBI and MVC, I worked within the care management department at Michigan Medicine, developing workflow processes to launch the University of Michigan Physician Advisor Program, and provided strategic planning support to the nursing and medical directors.
When I am not working, I enjoy cheering on my youngest daughter’s softball team, kayaking, and traveling to new places as much as possible. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
