Carole Pulaski, MSA BSN CPHQ, of Tabernacle, New Jersey, becomes NAHQ’s president-elect. Her professional background includes 14+ years of acute care experience in a hospital setting, with a concentration in maternal-child health as well as 15+ years in managed care as a healthcare quality professional. A colleague suggested she become a Certified Professional in Healthcare Quality® (CPHQ), which led her to becoming more involved with NAHQ.
Once a NAHQ member, Pulaski volunteered for the conference planning team. As a member of the conference planning team, she continually voiced the importance of including opportunities for all quality professionals across the healthcare continuum. Her experience within NAHQ included being a member and eventual team leader for the Conference Planning Team, team leader for the Professional Practice Advisory Team, and director-at-large on the NAHQ Board of Directors.
