As CEO & President of RI International, Inc., I have the privilege to lead a behavioral healthcare team committed to creating recovery opportunities for everyone. The Company focus on “what’s strong,” not “what’s wrong” and clinical quality is transformative. RI helps individuals and families succeed in accomplishing their goals and to reconnect to themselves, others, and to meaning and purpose in life.
RI International, Inc. projects revenues of $60 million in 2016 with recovery programs in six states (Arizona, California, Delaware, North Carolina, Texas, and Washington) and Auckland, New Zealand. Our programs are grouped into advanced crisis, transition management, integrated outpatient and peer supports, and consulting and training.
Previously, as Vice-President Clinical & Program Outcomes for Magellan Health, I led the administrative, financial, programmatic and clinical oversight for the $750 million annual RBHA integrated care health plan contract with the Arizona Department of Health Services.
I have served on several national boards, including the American Association of Suicidology, National Council for Behavioral Health, SAMHSA National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, Relias Learning and the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention. I am also a licensed professional counselor and have an MBA from Kennesaw State and a Master of Science from the University of Memphis.
My brands include Zero Suicide, RI International, Inc., and Behavioral Health Link. I’ve been fortunate to lead many award-winning, innovative projects including suicide care, performance management dashboards, integrated care, peer supports, and data analytics/software solutions. My behavioral health care management history also includes CEO of Behavioral Health Link and Director of Public Sector Quality Management at APS Healthcare.
