Bio: Maura joined the Cambia Grove team in April 2017. She brings with her a diverse set of allies looking to transform health care. Her previous government roles built her network to include a range of sectors including the life sciences, global health, energy, ICT and natural resources.
Maura passionately believes our region can be a shining example of what is possible in health care through collaboration. Her current role as interim Executive Director builds on her previous leadership roles in advancing the conversation towards constructive change.
As Governor Inslee’s Life Science and Global Health Sector Lead, Maura led strategic initiatives to put our region back on the map—from recruiting the 17th Annual NIH SBIR/STTR Conference to Washington for the first time in conference history, to working with startups to connect them to vital resources that will help them grow and thrive in the Northwest.
Maura began her journey in the health care sector in 2009 where she played a key role in communicating the federal Affordable Care Act to local stakeholders as a staff member for then Congressman Jay Inslee. As the Washington State Director of the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, her perspective was greatly influenced by her work in patient advocacy.
The Cambia Grove’s approach can be described simply:
Convene organize and connect the community
Identify problems and find solutions
