What is new and exciting with you now or since your LEAD VIRGINIA class year?

Since completing the LEAD VIRGINIA experience, I have left the corporate world. I now serve in an independent consulting capacity, assisting organizations tackle the financial and operational issues they confront. In my corporate roles, I typically enjoyed my work and the individuals with whom I interacted, but it was difficult for me to see any resulting societal benefits. Now I have the flexibility to directly help organizations succeed. Sometimes the organizations I help are non-profits, sometimes they are companies with a compelling idea or mission, and sometimes they are small to medium sized companies trying to maximize their potential.

President & CEO
Virginia Center for Health Innovation

What is new and exciting with you now or since your LEAD VIRGINIA class year?

This January, I was named President and CEO of the new Virginia Center for Health Innovation.

Through its very structure and board composition, VCHI recognizes that purchasers, insurers, providers, and consumers all have to be collaboratively engaged in ensuring that better value is achieved in health care spending. The Center will achieve its mission by focusing on four core services: conducting benchmark research, convening and educating stakeholders, overseeing demonstration research, and spreading information on proven models of value-driven wellness and health care through the creation of a Virginia Health Innovation Network. For me personally, it is an amazing opportunity to be leading a ground breaking team focused on achieving better value in health care and securing a competitive edge for Virginia.
