What is the best part of your role at Northwell Health?
I got into health care because I wanted to make a positive impact on people’s lives. This role of Chief Human Resource Officer for Northwell allows me to work toward that career mission on a daily basis for our 68,000 team members. I also have the opportunity to work with an amazing team — hard working, thoughtful, intelligent and dedicated individuals — who bring “Made for this” to life every day, and that’s pretty cool!
What inspired you to run the TCS NYC Marathon?
Training for, and then running marathons has been something I have enjoyed for the last seven years. This will be my fourth time running the TCS NYC Marathon and there is something that just makes this the most special place to run. Perhaps it is the fact that this is my home town, or the number of people who run and compete on the same field on the same day, or the truly inspirational people you see running the race conquering their disability. The city truly comes alive on race day and I have not been able to experience something that even comes close to it in any other city.
