Prior to joining Vorys Health Care Advisors, Maureen directed all policy and program initiatives for the state of Ohio’s Medicaid program. As deputy director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, Maureen was responsible for case management and managed care services, nursing homes and other institutional services, home and community-based waivers, and all reimbursement-related activities. She also had supervisory responsibility for all benefit design, eligibility and health plan policies.

Maureen's work involved regular interaction with members of the Ohio General Assembly, the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, other state agencies with services in this area, and numerous stakeholder organizations within Ohio and beyond its borders.  She participated actively in a number of interagency initiatives, with a special interest in children and individuals with disabilities.

Maureen provided leadership and assistance with BEACON (Best Evidence for Advancing Childhealth in Ohio Now), a nationally recognized public-private partnership designed to transform agency practices and improve the quality of child health services. Recognized for her passion and problem-solving abilities, Maureen served as the state’s Interim Medicaid Director in 2010.

Prior to joining the Department of Job and Family Services in the Spring of 2008, Maureen was the president of governmental and legislative affairs for the Ohio Provider Resource Association. Her responsibilities included strategic communication and governmental relations with emphasis on issues relevant to providers of services for individuals with developmental disabilities.

For a period of 14 years beginning in 1984, Maureen held several state government positions.

Initially, she headed the Office of Budget and Cost Containment Policy in the Department of Health. Later, as executive assistant to Governor Richard Celeste, she was the state’s chief human services policy advisor.  Maureen also served as assistant director of the Ohio Department of Mental Health, at the pleasure of Governor George V. Voinovich, where she was instrumental in Ohio’s nationally recognized mental health systems reforms.

During her years of public service, and as an advocate for improved services for individuals with a variety of disabilities, Maureen provided active leadership in the development and execution of 14 state biennial budgets.

Maureen holds an MBA from Case Western University, with a concentration in finance and health care; and a Masters Degree in Nursing from Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, Case Western Reserve, where she also served as a clinical faculty member.
