Experienced leader and health care professional, and Administrator for Upstate Emergency Medicine, Inc. at SUNY Upstate Medical University, Syracuse. I have worked for 25 years in academic emergency medicine. I received an MBA from Syracuse University, as well as a CPC designation from American Association of Professional Coders. Memberships include the Academy of Administrators in Academic Emergency Medicine, American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC), EDPMA, ED Benchmarking Alliance, and ACEP. I am on the AAAEM Benchmarking Committee. Special interests include new business development, financial planning and analysis, strategic planning, leadership, and coding/reimbursement. Extensive work has been done to expand the business of Upstate Emergency Medicine including Tele ER, and an Opioid Addiction Bridge Clinic. In my spare time I like to volunteer to make the world better, and to read.
