As leader of Sg2’s Strategy and Planning practice, Jennifer works with boards, chief strategy officers and executive teams from leading hospitals and health systems to understand the impact of industry trends in their local markets. She frequently presents and facilitates on strategic issues, such as workforce, innovation and disruption, the physician enterprise, and revenue diversification. As one of the original faculty of Sg2’s strategic planning workshop, she also works with strategy leaders and teams to understand the role of strategic planning in health care and how it is evolving.
Prior to Sg2, Jennifer spent a decade consulting for and advising to medical groups on issues related to governance, compensation, business development, operational efficiency and reimbursement/compliance.
Jennifer also worked at the University of Chicago Health System managing the physician compensation program for its community physicians, and in ambulatory care for what is now Advocate Aurora Health Illinois Masonic Medical Center.
With over 20 years in health care, Jennifer has seen the resilience of those who work in health care; still loves it like she did as a graduate student; and believes that physicians and hospitals can work together to solve even the biggest challenges.
Jennifer has published articles and podcasts, has been quoted in numerous industry magazines, and is trying to decide if she wants to get serious about tweeting. She received an MS in health systems management from Rush University, where she currently has an adjunct faculty appointment, and a BS in psychology from the University of Illinois.
