Chief Operating Officer, Patient Safety Movement Foundation
Ariana has been with the Patient Safety Movement Foundation since 2015 and is currently serving as Chief Operating Officer.
In her short career prior to joining the Patient Safety Movement Foundation, Ariana graduated cum laude from Loyola Marymount University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a minor in Studio Arts. She worked at the University of California, Irvine’s Institute for Immunology for one year and left her post at UCI to pursue a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland in 2012, with a focus on oral immunotherapy for children with egg allergy. Ariana came back to California and spent time at the Orange County Healthcare Agency in the Health Promotion Division. She then seized the opportunity to work at Masimo Corporation, in the Fire and Emergency Medical Services sector, where she worked closely with marketing and sales to develop a Grant Assistance Program, helping Fire and EMS Departments procure devices to help them screen for carbon monoxide poisoning, among department staff and the public. Ariana volunteered at the Patient Safety Movement Foundation’s 2015 Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit and knew that she wanted to step into a leadership role to support the Foundation’s audacious mission.
Since joining the Patient Safety Movement, Ariana developed the Committed Partners opportunity for professional societies, associations, and other aligned healthcare-related organizations to work with the Movement and has helped grow the number of committed organizations to over 4,500 worldwide, spanning 49 countries.
