BHT Welcomes Director of Clinical Integration to the Team

The BHT team is delighted to welcome Charisse Pope as our new Director of Clinical Integration! We feel like we’ve scored the jackpot on recruiting her to our ACH efforts. Charisse will bring on the ground clinical experience as both a provider and an administrator, and her work with the RSN/BHO will be invaluable as we move to integrated care. She will hit the ground running, as BHT only knows one speed full speed ahead, on January 2nd. Here’s a bit of bio on Charisse, if you don’t already know her.

Charisse grew up in Eastern Wasington and has 20 years of non-profit and social service experience. She has a Masters in Counseling Psychology and started out in social services as a therapist working with adolescent girls. She then went on to earn a Masters in Business Administration to support the work of others as an administrator.  Charisse continued in administration working for the Spokane County Regional Support Network overseeing a provider network, contracting, fiscal allocations, utilization, and working with other counties and regions as chair of County Human Services for several years. She then returned to her roots at Excelsior and served as Chief Business Officer. In her free time, she loves being at home with family, weekend outings, and playing with her sidekick dog. Welcome, Charisse!
