Vice President of Marketing and Communications
Methodist Health System


Tell us more about yourself and your background.

I joined Methodist in 2010 as a marketing account manager after a few years working in public relations for a local nonprofit arts group. At the time, I had zero health care experience and found myself consistently researching acronyms that I heard in various meetings with clinical and nonclinical colleagues. We sure do like our acronyms in health care, so I had to learn quickly. Shortly after I arrived, there was a transition in leadership in the Marketing Department that accelerated my health care learning curve. In 2013 I was promoted to senior account manager. In 2017, I was named senior director of marketing. I now serve as vice president of marketing and communications.

I was born and raised in Omaha and spent the majority of my childhood swimming competitively. My husband, Adam, and I met and started dating as teenagers at North High School. We’ve been together 22 years and have a 4-year-old son. In addition to my roles as wife, daughter, mom and marketer, I just finished up being a student again. In December, I completed a Master of Science in marketing and communications from Loyola University New Orleans.


Why Methodist? What attracted you to the organization?

I was a Methodist patient long before I was a Methodist employee. In fact, I was born at Methodist Hospital. That said, I needed to find a doctor when I moved back to Omaha after college in 2007. Methodist’s advertising resonated with me – it was warm, familiar and approachable. I asked friends about their experiences before ultimately choosing a Methodist OB/GYN. When I decided to look for a different job, I applied at Methodist in part because of my experience as a patient. I knew I wanted to work for and represent a brand that aligned with my values and continue working in a nonprofit space.


What is it about Methodist that keeps you coming back?

Throughout my time with Methodist, I’ve had many opportunities to develop new skills and expand my career. Each of those opportunities has presented challenges, but I can honestly say I’ve never looked back.

I love working for a brand I believe in. Our position in the market is unique – we’re known for the care we provide to patients and their families. We’re known for establishing unique partnerships in the community.

I love my team. They’re all amazing at what they do individually. And collectively, we’re even stronger. They’re creative, collaborative and just downright fun. No matter the challenge at hand, we come together and find ways to tell the story of Methodist and The Meaning of Care in ways that are incredibly impactful for our employees and the communities we serve.


Do you have any favorite memories from your time at Methodist?

I always enjoy the planning and execution of our advertising campaigns. If I told you how many hours it takes to get footage for a single 30-second commercial, you probably wouldn’t believe me. The days and nights are long, but it’s really fulfilling to spend time in our hospitals and clinics working with our providers and staff to illustrate The Meaning of Care. It’s also incredibly fulfilling to see a campaign transform from an idea to a TV commercial, an outdoor board, etc. and know that the team and our agency partner helped bring it to life.


What should people know about Methodist and its culture?

I like to think that, by and large, Methodist employees are here for more than a job. They’re here for connection. For community. For a challenge. For a chance to make a difference in another person’s life. We all have a hand in delivering The Meaning of Care to the patients and families who come to us for care. Whether it is sterilizing instruments for a procedure, greeting a worried loved one when they arrive at an Emergency Department, comforting a patient after delivering the news of a difficult diagnosis or celebrating a new milestone reached, we all contribute to the experience that patients and families have at Methodist – and it’s a task we don’t take lightly.
