Eileen has a strong interest in effective policy and program design and implementation, particularly for programs serving adults with disabilities and older adults. Trained as a lawyer, Eileen has a deep knowledge of Medicaid policy and the state regulatory and operational environment in which the Medicaid program operates. She enjoys keeping her eye on the larger strategic policy goals while digging into the regulatory and operational details that need to be addressed for effective implementation. Much of her work has involved working collaboratively with policymakers and other stakeholders to integrate policy and programs, streamline overlapping regulatory requirements, evaluate integrated programs, and bring state policy into compliance with new federal law. She has strong analytic and writing skills, can conceptualize and frame problems, and helps policymakers and other stakeholders develop strategies for addressing problems.

Areas of Expertise

Medicaid policy, Medicare and Medicaid financial alignment, integrated care, long term services and supports for older adults and adults with disabilities, adult protective services, policy development, program design and implementation, and program evaluation.
