“I have no doubt that she will continue to impress us and lead the area’s health care organizations to even greater heights,” Feldman said.
Hackenbracht's career with GDAHA includes a stint as vice president of public policy.
She has 13 years of non-profit and healthcare experience, having served as executive director of the Cuyahoga Health Access Partnership (CHAP) in Cleveland during the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
She earned a bachelor of arts in political science from Wright State University and a master’s in public administration from the University of Dayton.
