Scott’s role is to support NORA’s strategic plans for national growth, and expansion of services throughout the country while ensuring a focus on high quality and core values that are aligned with the OPO’s, transplant centers and labs that we support on a daily basis.

Most recently he served as the Director of the Clinical Procurement team and as an AOC for 15 years. He previously served on the UNOS Transplant Coordinator committee, the AOPO Standards & Accreditation committee as a Site Surveyor (Past Chair) and surveyed over 24 different OPO’s across the nation.

Over the years he was active nationally with NATCO, UNOS, AOPO and participated in CMS and UNOS audits. He presented at NATCO meetings to include top case study, at the National collaboratives and learning congress on many different topics.

Scott’s industry experience working with OPO’s and Transplant Centers across the country and knowledge of OPO practice and UNOS’s changing policies along with his work ethic and commitment to donation and transplantation makes him a great fit in guiding NORA’s continuing expansion across all regions of the country.
