BIP Director Transitioning
After 8 years of leading the Baltimore Integration Partnership, I am transitioning to take an opportunity at LifeBridge Health where I will lead community development and help support their anchor institution strategies. Thank you for helping shape an amazing and impactful initiative. Our success has relied on your work, your lifting, and commitments to Baltimore. I look forward to continuing to stay engaged with the BIP and all of you as I switch chairs around the table. We have gotten a lot done but there is still much work ahead.
