Senior Program Director
I bring 7 years of previous experience in Patient Advocacy to this role, in which I developed new programs and services to support patients and families living with a chronic medical condition. In my experience with Patient Advocacy, I have fostered connections between patients as they are a key source of support for one another, developed educational materials to keep patients up-to-date about information that may impact their health outcomes, and conducted surveys to identify unmet needs within the community. I also worked closely with healthcare providers to support their work, including building networks of healthcare providers and hosting meetings where providers had the opportunity to share expertise and concerns with their peers. I also worked with physicians to help develop guidelines for patient care management, and helped to develop webinars to provide evidence-based training to healthcare providers. I am delighted to begin working with patients and families living with facial differences and to help expand myFace’s programs and services for their benefit. I also look forward to partnering with craniofacial healthcare providers to support their work, and to reach more patients and families. Together, we can all transform the lives of children and adults with facial differences.
