Being a part of the faculty team at Governors State University is an opportunity to give back to the field of health care management. Seeing the growth and development of students in our field and watching them learn and ultimately serve our society and improve the health status of our communities is what motivates me to continue in academia. Being responsible for the department and implementation of university, college and department policies insures that I can make a difference in the lives of our students.

 

I hold a Doctorate of Healthcare Administration from Central Michigan University, a Master's degree in Public Administration/Health Services Management and a BA in Environmental Studies.  I am a Harvard Macy Scholar, a fellow in the UIC Public Health Leadership Institute and a fellow in the American College of Health Care Executives. I'm also the immediate past President of the Institute for Diversity in Health Management, and the past President of the Chicago/Mid-west Chapter of the National Association of Health Services Executives (NAHSE). 


My community service is directed at improving the health status of the people in our communities, especially those who lack equity in the health services to which they have access. Therefore I serve on a number of boards that share the mission of improving the health status and equity of their communities, including: the board of Trustees for the Roseland Community Hospital, the Thapelo Institute and the National Association of Health Services Executives.
