In her role as VP of Community Health and Strategy, Dorothy worked with division executives on various strategic and operational initiatives. As VP, Dorothy played a key role in driving ancillary revenue across multiple key areas, strategic planning, and new business initiatives. Tasks included investigating value propositions associated with introducing new services to markets, and expanding into new markets. The VP defines objectives to gain market share and maximize profitability and executes plans to make those objectives achievable. Partnering with leaders across the organization, the VP’s responsibility is to take advantage of the company’s core competencies, and to recognize when strategies under consideration do not align with those competencies. Scope included the day-to-day operational responsibility of the Community Care and Innovative Aging divisions which includes two Georgia Medicaid waiver programs for the aged, blind, and disabled, Alzheimer’s & Parkinson’s respite care, health and wellness coaching, and case management for two county-based systems.
