Next chapter …

After 13 terrific years, I have left Southcoast Health System to take advantage of some new and exciting opportunities. 

This was the right time for a move — both for me and for Southcoast. 

I invested a great deal of my professional and personal life into Southcoast and our communities. I am proud to have positioned the marketing, advertising, PR and community-focused functions at Southcoast for a very strong and sustainable future. 

In recent years, I have become increasingly interested and involved in improving the patient experience — from transparency of quality reporting to improving customer service to exploring new ways to build patient engagement by harnessing marketing principles and social media. All of these will be vitally important in health care’s brave new future.

I was proud to serve Southcoast, our patients and the communities of the South Coast region. I had a great run with an absolutely amazing and creative team. We won boatloads of awards every year — and I enjoyed it immensely. 

I’ll be hanging out here online and hope you will continue to stop by. 

News will be ongoing. Stay tuned.
