In order for health systems to thrive, they need to make critical decisions. Our team applies many years in the field to help our clients understand the environment, refocus their capabilities and make hard decisions about how to transform the business model from fee for service to an outcome-based approach.
I've had an interest in healthcare since my early days of joining HORNE. As the industry has seen new challenges in meeting the needs of patients, I have worked on the front line, seeking ways for organizations to flourish. With a Masters in Public Health (MPH), I am able to support administrative and clinical professionals in the broadest capacity, assisting them in developing a solid platform for financial stability.
I have always been committed to the healthcare community in professional and personal ways. HFMA, the primary resource for healthcare financial individuals, has been a part of my career for over 30 years. In fact, my oldest son was born at a HFMA national conference – talk about commitment! I’m a member of the MPH Advisory Board and Southern MS Foundation Board, which allows me to engage with key healthcare decision makers and new voices in the industry. And as a Type 2 Diabetic, I'm keenly aware of the physical and emotional challenges faced by individuals with this chronic disease, so I have been a member of the Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi for a long time.
