The new director is currently president and founder of Vorys Health Care Advisors where she has worked on a variety of health care policy issues and with a number of physician and other health care professional organizations. Prior to this, she gained extensive experience in public service as the assistant deputy and acting deputy for Medicaid at the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services. She also served as a human services policy advisor to Ohio Governor Richard Celeste and as the chief of the Office of Healthcare Cost Containment policy for the Ohio Department of Health.
