As the Director of Professional Development and Training, she will develop and implement programming to build employee job skills, prepare the next generation of leaders within the organization, in addition to managing special projects. 

Ms. Jock, who previously served as the Director of Behavioral Health for Citizen Advocates, will focus on improving health outcomes, quality of care, and value of care for patients.

Using a data driven approach, she will support the development and implementation of partnerships and actions intended to improve the whole health of the population and reduce health inequities.
