Marian University for St.Vincent Health

Director of Community and Corporate Relations  (November 2013 - Present)

While my accountability is based on new student enrollment, my strategy includes creating referral partnerships, process efficiencies, student and client communications, training and marketing strategies. My partners include:

  • Marian University - students, alumni, admissions staff, faculty and leadership
  • St.Vincent - nursing directors, marketing, HR, education, recruiters and leadership
  • 3rd party Shared Service Center which manages all non-student facing operations
  • Educational partners across the state - career services, advisors, faculty and marketing
  • Business and community leaders

Outreach Coordinator  (March 2010 - November 2013)

I was hired to build a recruitment and relationship strategy for Indiana's only 16-month, second degree accelerated online BSN nursing program.  This collaboration between Marian University and St.Vincent Health was formed to address the nursing shortage while offering another pathway for individuals holding a bachelor's degree to become a nurse in 16 months. 

When I started, just ten students were enrolled in our program. By December of 2013, we produced over 250 new nurses to the community, with an additional 250 enrolled.

Talent Acquisition Team Lead

St.Vincent Indianapolis Hospital is part of St.Vincent Health, one of Indiana's largest healthcare employers and a member of Ascension Health, the nation's largest not-for-profit catholic healthcare system.

I was hired to design recruitment marketing strategies that would result in more hires for less money. In my first year, I reduced ad budget 35% and increased number of hires by 8%.

To maximize resources and expenditures, I built relationships with consumer marketing, web services, outside vendors, HRIS, executives, associates and nursing leadership.
