Susan brings a wealth of healthcare leadership and executive level operating experience, garnered over 28 years in an evolving healthcare industry, with 24 years of focused Medicare/Medicaid leadership experience. She brings a keen strategic ability, coupled with direct operational experience, to quickly discern and prioritize what needs to be done to achieve desired results – both short and long term – and effectively lead organizations. She uses a variety of tools and principally achieves through thoughtful, clear leadership. She enjoys leading and sharing her experience to support the development of people and organizations.
Susan most recently served as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Director of Florida Healthcare Plus (FHCP) and its holding company. FHCP was a privately held Medicare Advantage plan located in Miami, Florida. She was responsible for the overall strategic development and operational performance of FHCP. Originally deemed a “turnaround”, she quickly discovered Medicare fraud, and disclosed the issues to federal and state authorities. In addition to investigating and dealing with fraud, during her short tenure, significant operational and financial improvements were achieved and regulatory relationships improved. New investors were also identified and vetted, and were prepared to invest to take the company forward. The fraud disclosure and subsequent issues, however, proved to be insurmountable for the investors and the company was closed.
Prior to her role at FHCP, Susan was Director, President and CEO of Socios Mayores en Salud, Inc., a Medicare Advantage/Medicaid management organization in Puerto Rico under the Triple-S Management Group (NYSE: GTS), the Blue Cross Blue Shield licensee for Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands and Costa Rica. Her expertise and knowledge contributed to create a new vision, strategy and execution for Socios Mayores, which was principally centered on strengthening the company’s overall financial and compliance performance, while retaining the member–focused culture.
Prior to this appointment, Susan held other leadership roles across the industry, including executive positions with Leprechaun LLC, a medical technology company, and Anthem (formerly WellPoint), a health insurance company. She has significant experience in Washington, including delivering testimony before House and Senate committees several times. With over 28 years of progressive leadership in the healthcare industry – 24 of those years in Medicare/Medicaid – Susan has expertise through executive-level leadership experience, a strong financial foundation and a clear focus on creating and sustaining a service-oriented and disciplined business.
Susan holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Arizona, and is a CPA (inactive). To further pursue her passion for health, she attended and graduated from Bikram Yoga Teacher Training in Los Angeles in November, 2013, and is a passionate yogi – and yoga instructor – in her free time. From 1992-2011, she supported a non–profit large animal sanctuary in Montana, which she co–founded.
