From Westmoreland County, the youngest of three children of a single mother who worked at Eat ‘N Park, Ms. Redman had been a latchkey kid who rose on her own bootstraps. Gifted both intellectually and athletically, with strong morale conviction, she worked her way through the nursing program at Carlow College where she received the Caritas Christi Award for Excellence in Nursing, the All-American Scholar-Athlete Award for basketball (1,089 varsity career points), and the NAACP Academic Achievement Award, among others.

Ms. Redman was encouraged to become a physician, but she pursued a career in nursing, caring closely for patients, following and supporting them more intimately through the journey of healing. For a broader impact on patients’ lives she sought a higher degree in care management in order to guide patients along the continuum of care, ensuring their welfare and progress toward positive outcomes. Care managers are de facto patient ombudsmen, coordinating appropriate courses of treatment among healthcare professionals, hospitals, and insurance companies, seeing patients through their episodes of care, going toe-to-toe with insurers.
