Director, International Principal and Major Gifts Boston Children’s Hospital Trust, Boston, Massachusetts

Known worldwide for its excellent care, Boston Children’s Hospital is one of the largest pediatric medical centers in the United States – it is “where the world comes for answers.” The hospital has been ranked #1 in U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Children’s Hospital” lists for six years running. In addition to caring for children through 25,000 inpatient admissions annually, the facility also houses the world’s largest research enterprise based at any pediatric hospital, with more than 1,500 scientists.

The Boston Children’s Hospital Trust was founded in 1997 as a philanthropic resource for the hospital. The goal is to support efforts to advance patient care, research, medical training and community health. In 2016, the Trust publicly launched its Dream Dare Deliver campaign – the largest campaign of any children’s hospital. With an original goal of $1 billion, the Trust has exceeded this milestone and will be closing the campaign this fiscal year end in September.
