Planned Parenthood’s Board and staff are working closely to ensure our continued ability to meet increased demand for health care and education services in an environment of increased costs and restrictive public policy. Major initiatives include continued strengthening of finance and operations to ensure short and long-term viability; defining key business and clinical processes as part of a new patient management software system; facility improvements at all of our health centers; and continued efforts to retain and replace highly qualified medical and administrative staff in competitive markets. We also continue to strongly advocate for legislation that supports comprehensive family planning services. Our board consists of 22 members with diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise, representing the geographic region we serve. Each board member brings a continued commitment and dedication to Planned Parenthood and our mission.
Program success is monitored by data which are collected daily from health centers and reviewed regularly by management and reported annually to the Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
During 2015, tens of thousands of persons turned to one of our health centers for reproductive health care.
In 2015, hundreds of volunteers served as educators, patient escorts, community ambassadors, and other crucial positions supporting Planned Parenthood's mission.
Laura has a background designed to take PPKM into the future. She has a lifelong commitment to human rights, applying her skills throughout her career to empower women to decide their own future. A theme of Laura’s career has been giving voice and self-determination to those who have been excluded, whether that means working to give all South Africans a voice in their government to providing support to women and families seeking reproductive health services without fear.
Laura served as executive vice president and COO for the Center for Reproductive Rights, a global human rights organization, using law to advance reproductive freedom as a fundamental human right that every government has an obligation to protect and respect. While at the Center, the budget grew from $8M to $22M, the staff from 50 to 125 and the offices from one in New York to six worldwide.
Laura has held executive positions with Financial Services Volunteer Corps, a public-private initiative to build sound banking and financial systems in developing countries. She served as CFO, opening its first office in Asia and helping develop and implement initial program activity in Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, and India. She served as the CFO at the Foundation for a Civil Society and a program officer at the National Democratic Institute of International Affairs.
