In this capacity she will support the site presidents with product line planning, business development, capital budgets and other financial projects, while continuing to manage the MFS EEG Department and the MFS Infusion Center. The promotion aligns Jennifer’s extensive finance and business experience with the growing need for site financial advisory support.

Christine’s 15 years of progressively expanded finance experience makes her an exceptional fit for meeting the challenges posed by the increasing complexity of budget planning and reporting. Most recently she worked as business advisor for DeGraff and the Kaleida Health Laboratories and as the manager for decision support.
