With a diverse background in public health, law and business, Elizabeth brings a unique set of skills and experience to Stackpole & Associates’ clients.
Beginning her professional career in 1980, Elizabeth graduated from Suffolk University Law School in Boston, Massachusetts and went into private law practice specializing in immigration law. During the nursing shortage of the 1980’s, many of her medical clients asked for her assistance in recruiting medical personnel who were in great demand. Elizabeth set up an international recruitment company and traveled extensively outside the United States, looking for talented medical personnel to fill vacant positions stateside. In addition to her legal expertise, Elizabeth gained an in-depth knowledge of issues relating to the recruitment and retention of medical personnel as well as a solid understanding of the operations of healthcare systems outside the US.
Subsequently, Elizabeth went back to school to pursue her interest in public health and in September 2000, graduated from the Boston University School of Public Health with a Master’s degree in Public Health with a focus on international health. She established a Massachusetts non-profit organization, SHARED, which focuses on improving access to essential medicines through private-public partnerships. This organization is working successfully with other non-profit organizations, for-profit companies and ministries of health to deliver essential medicines to the world’s poorest people. Her education and experience in the realm of public health brings a fresh perspective to our clients.
In addition to her education and experience, Elizabeth is a talented writer whose articles have been published in several professional magazines such as “Provider” as well as humorous pieces for travel magazines. Her healthcare articles appear on this website in the “Resources” section.
As a licensed real estate broker with related legal experience, Elizabeth is a valuable resource to our clients who are interested in developing healthcare facilities such as independent living or assisted living centers. She works in conjunction with our marketing research and feasibility team to help clients launch successful real estate ventures.
Combining public health, law, and business with strong analytical and writing talents, Elizabeth brings a unique point of view to our clients that results in creative approaches to problem solving and project development.
