My sole purpose as CEO of LACMA is to serve physicians, defend them, protect the practice of medicine and ensure that our organization is more than relevant; it flourishes. I’ve been in healthcare long enough to know a thing or two about medicine but not long enough to stop caring for the sanctity of the physician-patient experience. Hospitals are my second home having served in executive leadership capacities at three large health systems in Southern California: ScrippsHealth (Director of Public Relations/Marketing), Sharp Healthcare (Vice President, Marketing, Communications and International Business) and Palomar Health (Senior Vice President, CMO, Marketing, Communications and Legislative Affairs). Most recently I served as Vice President at Healthgrades, a healthcare technology company. I firmly believe that if it matters to physicians, it matters to me.
