She oversees and coordinates marketing/communications initiatives for these three associations, ensuring that the appropriate messages about hospitals and healthcare policy are delivered and understood by such targeted audiences as the media, lawmakers, business and industry, government agencies, allied health associations, and the public. She also directs the Long Island Health Collaborative (LIHC), a population health-based initiative coordinated by the Nassau-Suffolk Hospital Council. LIHC is a coalition of 300-plus organizations, including hospitals, local county health departments, community-based organizations, health plans, academic institutions, schools, libraries, physician associations, and several businesses.

Her public relations/marketing work has been recognized by regional and national peer organizations, especially for her efforts in the area of outreach and awareness. In 2012, she was awarded the Outstanding Association Achievement Award for excellence in healthcare communication from the Association of Association Educators, a subgroup of the American Hospital Association. She has earned several regional awards for her health promotion campaigns and communications initiatives. She frequently lectures and writes about health policy, legislation and regulation, population health, public health, and how the power of the narrative distills these complex and abstract concepts into the understandable.
