Lesa’s passion for nursing began as a small child helping to care for her beloved grandfather. Seeing the difference quality care could make, her internal wish to make a difference flourished. Her 24 years as an RN has included such items as bedside nursing; care planning & the discharge process; long term & skilled care settings; ADON & DON positions; hospital management; Director of an RHC; policy/procedure development; and regulatory & compliance oversight. Lesa’s vast work experience has taught her the true value of care coordination, patient centered care, and communication/collaboration across healthcare systems. Utilizing these core principles, she strives to assist healthcare settings in achieving effective population health programs and strategies.
