Brief Bio

I started my career at CORE in 1987, rising to assistant executive director before accepting a position at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), overseeing clinical operations of 150 critical care beds and managing UPMC’s respiratory and renal dialysis departments. In 2004, I returned to CORE as president & CEO.

I serve on several boards including the community advisory board for WQED, the International Women’s Forum, the Mid-Atlantic Alliance for Performance Excellence (MAAPE), and Rotary International. I have also held volunteer leadership roles with AOPO, UNOS and Donate Life America.

I have a BSN from Duquesne University and MPM from Carnegie Mellon University.

Connections to the Cause

Candidate, Donor Family, Recipient


My experience with The Alliance has transpired for many years and has been a great opportunity to share best practices and to provide guidance in the transformation of CORE and its team members. CORE was actively involved in every Collaborative. Hospitals found the Collaboratives as an opportunity to hardwire information and best practices into their donation practices. The current information provided through the webinars is frequently utilized within the CORE organization.
