I am a member of the Canadian College of Health Leaders, with 10+ years of management experience in public and private healthcare in Canada, USA, and the United Kingdom.
My career focus on healthcare started in 2005 when I was Business Development Manager and Analyst for Dr. Allen Tien, Medical Decision Logic Inc (mdlogix) in Canada and USA.
Following this experience, in 2008 I returned to Canada to join a large health insurance company, Medavie Blue Cross, as Program Manager, Health Management Solutions. In this role I evaluated the health of employee populations through integrated analysis of health and disability data, to develop targeted health management initiatives and support long-term organizational health strategy. For this work, I was part of a team awarded a 'Who’s Who in Workplace Health' from Benefits Canada Magazine, Rogers Media, in 2010.
In 2012 I took a management position with Horizon Health Network. As Risk Manager I provided risk management leadership and advice for front-line and management stakeholders in 10 facilities, including 2 hospitals (~400 beds total), 4 community health centres, 1 addictions services, 1 mental health services, and 2 extra mural program facilities. During this time I was certified in Root Cause Analysis (RCA) and conducted medical error investigations. Through my involvement in medical error management I also participated in the legal discovery process.
