Innovation and Clinical Excellence Will Save More Lives
As the Chief Operations Officer, I have the privilege to oversee our clinical operations and lead our research initiatives. Leading our teams to advance donation and honor the gifts to ensure waiting recipients receive a second chance at life is what drives me every day.
I have served as the chair of both the Association of Organ Procurement Organizations (AOPO) Procurement Directors Council and Tissue Council. I am the Region 7 representative of the UNOS Organ Procurement Organization Committee and a member of AOPO’s Standards and Accreditation committee. I helped create the national donor risk assessment tool that is required for every organ, eye and tissue donor. I am a member of the Policy and Procedure Committee for MTF Biologics.
Prior to working at LifeSource, I worked as a surgical nurse at the University of Minnesota and a donation coordinator for Hennepin County Health Care. In addition to my nursing degree I hold a bachelor’s degree in Organizational Management and Communication and a Masters of Business Administration focus on Health Care Administration.
Donor families inspire me everyday as they say “yes” to making the world a better place through donation.
