Examples of Collaborative Projects

After graduating from college with a B.S. degree in accounting, I went to work with Price Waterhouse & Co., where I became a Certified Public Accountant and admitted as a partner in the firm. I remained with PW & Co. for some 20 years. Thereafter, I joined the Allegheny Health System in Pittsburgh, PA serving in a number of key financial and administrative roles, most notably SVP and CFO. I remained with the Allegheny System for approximately 10 years. Thereafter, I started my own healthcare consulting firm until being recruited as SVP and CFO for the CareGroup Healthcare System (CG) in Boston, where I remained for 8 years, most recently as President and CEO of New England Baptist Hospital, one of CG’s affiliates. Currently, I am a Professor of Practice in the HPA program at Pennsylvania State University.
