Donor Alliance, COO, Jennifer Prinz is being recognized by The Denver Business Journal (DBJ) for her outstanding leadership both in donation and transplantation and in the Denver business community.
Jennifer has been named a finalist for the 2019 Outstanding Women in Business Awards that recognize female leaders for their innovation, entrepreneurship, professional accomplishment and community leadership. Jennifer was also recognized by the DBJ with a C-Suite Award for her invaluable contributions to the Denver business community through her work as Chief Operating Officer of Donor Alliance.
Throughout her career, Jennifer has been passionate about organ, eye and tissue donation, and as a result, she has helped to ensure that countless patients in need have received the lifesaving or healing transplants they required. She joined Donor Alliance in 2008, and as the COO leads the day-to-day operations of the clinical, quality, hospital development and human resources departments.
Under Jennifer’s leadership, Donor Alliance has surpassed many significant milestones that have helped to improve the climate for transplant patients in our service area. Colorado and Wyoming have consistently remained some of the top states in the nation for donor designation rates, and last year alone, Donor Alliance facilitated recoveries from 160 donors, saving the lives of a record-breaking 489 people.
Jennifer has been a pillar in the Denver healthcare community for more than a decade. Her mentorship and teachings have had lasting impact on her team as she continues to instill innovative practices and develop leaders that ensure Donor Alliance’s continued success. Although the thousands of Coloradans and Wyomingites whose lives have been saved and healed by organ and tissue transplants may not know her name, she is helping to lead the charge behind the scenes to ensure the lifesaving and healing transplants they rely on are available.
Congratulations to Jennifer on both of these distinguished, well-deserved honors!
