March for Moms, a national nonprofit that organizes citizens from across the country to improve the wellbeing of American mothers, has named Katherine Shea Barrett as the founding Executive Director. Ms. Barrett joins March for Moms from the Massachusetts Health Policy Commission, where she served as the Policy Director for Care Delivery Transformation and Strategy, and drove critical improvements to the delivery of health care across the Commonwealth. She brings 15 years of leadership experience in both the private and public sectors aimed at making health care delivery more safe, affordable and equitable for Massachusetts families.
“Katie’s values, ability to bridge diverse perspectives, and unremitting commitment to vulnerable families align closely with the founding principles of March for Moms. Her appointment as Executive Director is a watershed moment in the movement to ensure all mothers get the care and support they deserve,” said Ginger Breedlove, Chair of the March for Moms Association Board of Directors.
