Years of Employment: Since 2012

Experience at St. John’s: I have served St. John’s in several capacities. Starting in 2002, I was elected to the Meadows board of directors and later also became a board member for St. John’s Senior Services. In 2007, when St. John’s began looking at the property adjacent to St. John's Meadows, I resigned from the board of directors and was hired as a consultant to be the project manager for Brickstone. In 2008, I was also asked to oversee the design and construction of St. John’s Penfield Green House homes. In 2012, I joined St. John’s as an employee, with responsibilities for strategic programs across St. John’s. With the project complete at Brickstone, I assumed corporate-wide responsibility for Strategic Planning, Compliance, Risk Management, and Policies & Procedures, in addition to managing large projects for St. John’s.

Past work experience: I began my career as a systems engineer working on space-based imaging systems for Eastman Kodak Company. Promotions included project management, operations group leader, and business manager. As a business segment vice president at Kodak, I was responsible for $60M in revenue and led an organization of 300 people. In 2001, I left Kodak to begin a career as an executive management consultant, assisting not-for-profit organizations in strategic planning, process improvement, project management and general business management.
