Director of Practice Transformation
I am a Clinical Excellence Quality Improvement Advisor under the Practice Transformation Network (PTN) initiative at CHCACT. My role is to coach and advise the FQHCs through the 27 Milestones and 7 Aims of the Transforming Clinical Practices Initiative (TCPi). The goal of PTN is to prepare the FQHCs for the impending switch from a Fee for Service Model to an Alternative Payment Model. I work with the health centers to implement QI initiatives, a Patient-Centered Care design, and other innovative strategies to be ready for value based care.
I obtained my Master’s degree in Public Administration from the University of New Haven, with a focus in Public Health. While earning my Master’s, I interned with Governor Malloy and as a legislative assistant with Murtha Cullina Government Affairs Group.
From 2013 to 2014, I served as an AmeriCorps VISTA member, working on food justice initiatives in Hartford. My experience in AmeriCorps led me to serve as a youth commissioner on the Connecticut Commission for Community Service and as a member of the leadership board for AmeriCorps Alums Association of CT. I received my Bachelor’s degree from Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Sociology, with a minor in Social Justice.
I believe that everyone should have equal access to high quality, affordable healthcare. I am excited to be part of the CHCACT team to work towards that goal.
