Gay Johnson, CEO
Message from the CEO
For almost 23 years, I have had the joy of working for the National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women’s Health (NPWH). For the past 8 years, I have had the privilege of representing all of you as your Chief Executive Officer (CEO). And now, it is time for me to shift my focus and energy to my family members, who require more time than I have to give. For that reason, I will be retiring as of January 3, 2020.
This decision to retire has not been an easy one for me because serving as CEO of NPWH is not just a job, but a passion. I have truly enjoyed supporting all of you, and I am immensely proud of all that we have been able to accomplish together to advance the profession of women’s health nurse practitioners and other advanced practice nurses who care for women. I have seen NPWH grow and change over the years, and I feel honored to have played a part in seeing this association emerge as a leader in women’s health. We are now sought after as an organizational leader in women’s health by industry and other advocacy groups, and we are highly respected among our fellow healthcare associations. Our opinion matters.
For me, it’s not just about NPWH, the association. It’s also about knowing and working with so many esteemed NPs during my time at NPWH. To this day, I am still in awe of the tireless and compassionate work you do each day to care for women. I extend my heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you for your friendship and support over the years.
– Gay Johnson Chief Executive Officer, NPWH
