Tabitha Jensen Named Senior Director for Lifelong

Marylhurst alum Tabitha Jensen has been promoted to senior director of healthcare access for Lifelong AIDS Alliance.

This newly created department will pioneer Medicaid expansion efforts for care coordination of individuals with HIV/AIDS in Washington state as a result of health care reform.

Jensen will be responsible for developing program opportunities that ensure people living with HIV and other chronic conditions have access to health insurance. She is responsible for managing Lifelong's partnerships with governmental bodies such as the state Department of Health, the state Health Care Authority, and Medicaid managed care programs. Additionally, Jensen will oversee the current insurance program as well as information technology departments.

From 2011 through July 2012, Jensen held the role of director of human resources and administration at Lifelong where she managed the volunteer, facilities, human resources, thrift store and information technology departments. Prior to that position, she was the insurance program manager from 2008 to 2011.

"Tabitha's tenure with Lifelong combined with her background in banking and business make her the perfect match to lead this new division," states Randall Russell, Lifelong's chief executive officer. "The senior director title is reserved for leadership team members who demonstrate on a consistent basis their willingness to go above and beyond on behalf of Lifelong and who possess strong, talented leadership abilities. Tabitha has earned this title and will be undoubtedly fantastic in this role."

Jensen earned her MBA with a concentration in nonprofit management from Marylhurst University and participated in post‑graduate executive education programs at Stanford Graduate School of Business and Harvard Business School. She is also a certified mediator, and earned a certificate in conflict resolution and bachelor's degree in interdisciplinary studies from Marylhurst University.
