Mrs. Henderson was formerly the director for the Graduate Health Administration and Education program at Saint Joseph’s University. She received a Bachelor’s degree in Counseling Education form Pennsylvania State University and a Masters of Science degree in Health Administration and Health Education from Saint Joseph’s University. She has been committed to the field of healthcare for the past 16 years. She was instrumental in the planning and organizing of the online program at Saint Joseph’s University in 2010. She provided administrative oversight to the graduate programs and academic advising to students in Health Administration and Health Education. She believes in meeting each person or project exactly where it is and transforming from the “inside-out,” which resembles the Jesuit educational vision of "concern for the individual student" (cura personalis). She works every day to see that each student reaches his or her fullest potential and continues to work to improve health policy and public health issues facing all Americans.
