AHDI Leadership Changes

Friday, September 8, 2017  

Dear AHDI Members,

On behalf of the National Leadership Board, I wish to share some important news. We have accepted Linda Brady’s resignation as AHDI’s Chief Executive Officer. Linda’s last day with AHDI will be October 29, 2017.

In a special session on September 7, our National Leadership Board (NLB) named Sheila Guston, CHDS, AHDI-F, as AHDI’s Interim CEO on a volunteer basis. Sheila will continue to serve on the NLB as Immediate Past President and At-Large Director. Sheila has extensive senior-level management experience and currently is Manager, HIM Healthcare Documentation Integrity at Spectrum Health System in Grand Rapids, MI. The association is extremely fortunate to have Sheila stepping into this key leadership role.

Over the next several weeks, the NLB will be developing a comprehensive transition plan, which will include developing a process and timeline for selecting a new CEO. Furthermore, Sheila and Linda will begin to work together to facilitate a seamless transition. Although it will be difficult to replace Linda, I’m confident in our ability to find the right candidate and direction for the organization.

Linda leaves AHDI after 8 years of dedicated work with the association and the healthcare documentation community. Linda said, “It has been an honor and pleasure to work with such a dedicated, passionate group of volunteer leaders, outstanding staff, and members who have a commitment to professional excellence that is second to none.” Linda and her family will be relocating to Austin, Texas where she will assume the role of Executive Director with an oral health association.

As we navigate these changes within our organization, we continue to move boldly ahead, always with the interests of our members and our association's strategic priorities at the forefront. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us, your National Leadership Board, with questions or ideas.

Best regards,

Leigh Anne Frame, CHDS, AHDI-F
AHDI President, 2017-2018
