Meet Mrs. Preparedness.
Doniella McKoy is a rising star in the business continuity field. Her experience in business continuity and risk management began with a business undergraduate degree coupled with a master’s degree in Emergency Management. Previous experience working for FEMA and being a member of New York City’s Emergency Management Team only fueled her passion for managing and reducing both business and personal risk.
Today, Doniella teaches Business Continuity & Crisis Management at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, solely runs the Business Continuity Program for Philadelphia’s Heath Partner’s Plan, a non-profit health plan providing services to 280,000 members, and she provides services to the homeless through her non-profit organization Gala Special Needs Foundation. Sleeping is not part of Doniella’s playbook.
In this episode, Doniella shares some of her career experiences with an emphasis on the criticality of collaboration in managing risk.
