What are 3 words to describe your company?
Innovative, enriching, quality.
What does a typical day look like for you?
Long. :) I spend a lot of time in meetings, as do most leaders. I try to carve out time every week to round with front line staff, ask for their suggestions, offer assistance and most importantly, thank them for the great work that they do.
What is on your wish list for the next 10 years?
Retirement. More visiting with kids and grandkids in NYC and Seattle. And, bucket list traveling.
If you were stuck on an island what three things would you bring?
A kindle loaded with books, music, and my husband.
Why did you join HFMA Wisconsin?
For the networking opportunities. It is great to have people in the same jobs, tackling the same issues, whom I can turn to for advice.
