Director of Health Information Technology
Alice started her career at Friends Homes in 1979 as the social worker for Whittier Nursing Center. During her first 11 years, she also helped with
activities and managed medical records and staff development. In 1989, she became the health care administrator for the assisted living and skilled
nursing units at Friends Homes at Guilford. During that time, Friends Homes’ campuses adopted the Eden Alternative principles of person-centered care, and
in 1998, Alice joined the North Carolina Culture Change Coalition that promoted culture change in all of the state’s nursing facilities.
In 1995 Alice moved to a corporate position, managing the housekeeping and laundry services for both campuses. In 1999, Alice accepted the position of
special projects coordinator, a new position initially created to bring both campuses into Y2K readiness. Over the years, she has developed our data
network which now includes hardware and software support for our electronic medical records application. Alice is still a member of the NCCCC and has
served as chair for three terms.
Alice enjoys woodworking, outdoor activities with her two dogs, Darla and Petey, and spoiling her 11 great-nieces and nephews.
