CEO Today - Global Awards 2023

- 63 - Which of your career accomplishments to date are you most proud of having achieved? My career has encompassed several phases. Each of those phases holds accomplishments of which I am proud, including recognition for clinical excellence, training physicians and scientists, making discoveries that influence how we understand caring for children with atypical brain development, and a variety of leadership milestones. A common theme across all of these experiences is that each accomplishment was shared with a team of colleagues. Most recently, I am proud to have helped lead Kennedy Krieger Institute through the COVID-19 pandemic and public health emergency. As the leader of a healthcare and special education nonprofit organisation, keeping our patients, students, their families and our staff safe while still delivering care and education was deeply challenging. It took the full and concerted effort of our entire staff to not just survive, but to thrive so that we could deliver on our critically important mission. Can you tell us anything about what you are working on at the moment? We just launched our new strategic plan, which sets the vision for the next generation of growth and impact at Kennedy Krieger. This multifaceted plan will positively impact every segment of our organisation and increase our ability to serve more patients, students and families. What does this award mean to you? I am honoured to be recognised by CEO Today and to be included in the impressive, international group of leaders being honoured. I accept this recognition on behalf of our entire Kennedy Krieger organisation. To me, this award acknowledges the 2,800 committed individuals with whom I have the privilege of working and who impact people’s lives positively every day. CEO Today Global Awards 2023 - USA -
