New Haven, CT - Planned Parenthood of Southern New England (PPSNE) announced that its board of directors has chosen Amanda Skinner, MSN, MBA as the non-profit health care organization’s next President and CEO. Skinner will succeed Judy Tabar, the organization’s president and CEO of 20 years in late June.

“Amanda joins a strong organization that is committed to care no matter what,” said Simone Joyaux, Chair, Board of Directors for PPSNE. “She brings expertise in health care delivery – as a strategist, entrepreneur, and future thinker. Amanda is committed to social justice and equity, a fundamental framework for PPSNE. And she’s ready to continue our 100+ year fight for women’s rights.”

Skinner, a nurse midwife, is a graduate of Rice University with a BA in philosophy and managerial studies. She holds an MSN from the Yale School of Nursing and an MBA from the Yale School of Management. Skinner spent ten years in clinical practice as a nurse midwife, serving for four years as the Chair of the Connecticut Chapter of the American College of Nurse Midwives. During her tenure, she led a major legislative effort that ensured increased access to care for women in Connecticut, expanded the scope of practice for nurse midwives, and provided liability protection for collaborating physicians.

Skinner has also worked as a consultant with the Chartis Group, and as Executive Director of Clinical Integration and Population Health for Yale New Haven Health System. She most recently was Vice President and General Manager, Managed Value and Risk Analytics at Optum, a subsidiary of UnitedHealth Group and a leading information and technology-enabled health services business.

“I am humbled and honored to be selected as the next president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Southern New England,” said Skinner. “I have spent the past 25 years working to advance health care to foster improved health and well-being, health equity and access to care. It is the culmination of a lifelong dream to be able to work in this capacity on behalf of Planned Parenthood.”
