After 40 years of serving women and families throughout the greater Philadelphia region from its main campus in Bryn Mawr, PA, women’s healthcare provider Lifecycle WomanCare (LWC) proudly announces the hiring of a new Executive Director. Jaime Weinstein will succeed Kathy Boockvar as the 6th Executive Director of the stand-alone birth center, beginning her tenure in January 2019.
Ms. Weinstein grew up in Bucks County. She graduated from Long Island University in 2002 with an Interdisciplinary Bachelor of Arts in Social Justice with a focus on the impact on women, religion and international issues. During her college years, Ms. Weinstein was involved in fieldwork in the U.S., Israel, Turkey, and Northern Ireland, including volunteering in the medical offices of Planned Parenthood. Upon graduation, Ms. Weinstein started her career as a Development Assistant for Soroptimist International of the Americas, a global volunteer organization that economically empowers women and girls by providing access to education.
Ms. Weinstein gained experience within the Philadelphia non-profit sector through her work at The Franklin Institute as Development Communications Coordinator. After obtaining two graduate law degrees at Temple University, Ms. Weinstein joined Horsham, PA-based FirstLease, Inc. where she rose through the ranks from a Contracts Manager to EVP/COO. Ms. Weinstein, her husband and two children live in Warrington, PA.
“Lifecycle WomanCare continues to enjoy phenomenal growth in an ever-changing healthcare landscape, while maintaining a commitment to service that places women at the center of public health,” said Caryn Rivers, President of LWC’s Board of Directors. “Jaime brings an entrepreneurial spirit, paired with robust experience in both law and finance, to this work. We believe she will be the right leader to share the midwifery model of care with regional partners and practitioners.”
“It’s a dream come true to use my experience and enthusiasm to advocate for the highest standard of healthcare for women,” said Ms. Weinstein. “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the staff and board of Lifecycle WomanCare as we continue to advance a holistic, relationship-based model of care for women and families.”
