This plan included 128 DSRIP projects, valued over $1 billion.

She has also supported the Montefiore and OneCity Health Systems accounts in an advisory capacity.

Most recently, Mrs. Cole served as the lead for two California District Municipal Hospitals as they began their participation in California’s newest waiver program, PRIME. In this role, she was tasked with leading a team of consultants and to support these clients, Salinas Valley Memorial Health System and Antelope Valley Hospital System, understand the complexities of program implementation and stand up respective Project Management Offices to manage the implementation and performance reporting of selected transformational initiatives.

Mrs. Cole is a graduate of the University of North Texas Health Science Center, receiving a Masters of Health Administration and of Texas A&M University, where she received a Bachelor’s of Business Administration in Management and a Minor in Psychology, graduating from all programs with honors. She just recently relocated from Texas to join her husband in Nevada near Nellis Air Force Base; prior to relocating she served on two advisory boards in the Fort Worth and Texas A&M University communities.
