I have been the CEO at Henry J. Austin Health Center (HJAHC) for six years. However I have been at HJAHC for almost 23 years. I started as a part time Pediatrician at HJAHC in 1998. I very quickly fell in love with the work I do and the city of Trenton and soon became the Pediatric Section Chief, then the Chief Medical Officer and finally six years ago I became the Chief Executive Officer. Over the last two decades, I have been inspired every day by my colleagues and the patients we serve. I am inspired with how they overcome challenges, adversities and I believe too often systems that are designed to have them fail. I am motivated every day to create something better; to do something better because no matter what our economic situation is we all deserve the best in health care.
