New faces & more at CORE!

It’s been a busy couple of months with several notable additions and changes to the CORE team. We’re excited to introduce our new team members and tell you about a new role for a familiar face at CORE.

CORE veteran Lisa Angus is stepping up as our new Program Director for CORE’s Analytics & Strategic Consulting (ASC) team! Lisa will provide strategic, operational, and project leadership for the ASC team while also supporting overall organizational leadership and strategy at CORE. She joined CORE in 2017 and has been a key part of our growing team, as well as a longtime contributor to health system transformation and health policy work in Oregon and as far away as Sydney, Australia. When Lisa isn’t at CORE, you’ll likely find her in her garden or plotting her next travel adventure.

Denise Baldwin is CORE’s new Operations Coordinator. Denise will help keep us moving forward, on track and on schedule by supporting a variety of administrative duties at CORE. For Denise, it’s all about making her coworkers' lives easier! Outside of work, you can usually find her focusing on her crafty passion for fiber art!
