Respond & recover
I am here
I have held several leadership roles in emergency preparedness and pandemic response since 1997. Most recently I served as the senior vice president for clinical integration at the Hospital & Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania (HAP). At HAP, he provided clinical and administrative leadership for the Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP) (funded by the US Department of Health and Human Services) for the state of Pennsylvania.
My extensive experience includes leading a health system pandemic response to the 2009 H1N1 Pandemic. Coordination of that health system response with local, state, and federal authorities to maintain healthcare business continuity has been used as a model by other hospital systems.
Educating healthcare professionals and communicating to a varied audience has also been an important part of my professional career. I have been invited to speak to national audiences on regional healthcare response capabilities during nuclear incidents and maintaining business continuity during a pandemic.
I spent the early months of the Pandemic providing pro bono advisory services to K-12 schools, universities, and small businesses. Organizations lacked funds and we were all trying to figure it out. Later in 2020, I was engaged in two important projects:
Lead consultant for East West Protection to open an Alternate Care Site for Corpus Christi Medical Center during the summer 2020 COVID-19 surge and Hurricane Hannah.
Providing real-time advisory services to Oglethorpe University’s COVID-19 response by implementing a successful multi-layered approach to protect staff, students, and the surrounding community.

I know that Leading is not easy
Leading in the current environment is not easy and I am here to help. I am pivoting my executive coaching practice to include JIT-on-demand coaching for leaders and teams. Why? Teams are pivoting to a virtual workplace. Schools and churches are closing. Travel is restricted. Nations are on lockdown. You and your teams will be stressed and face a whole new set of challenges. Contact me for on demand coaching or a longer-term executive coaching engagement.
I am Happy to serve
Lastly, my goal is to serve in this time of need. Please contact me and we can discuss next steps
