The Department of Critical Care Medicine (CCM) would like to offer their congratulations to Kelly Gottschalk, recently promoted to Director of Operations. As Director of Operations, Kelly is responsible for all faculty and University of Pittsburgh staff recruitment, hiring, promotions and accompanying details such as contracts, finance, and business operations. She also manages a team of eight staff members.
Kelly has been with UPMC for 6 years, two of those years with PSD and the rest right here in CCM. Prior to her time at UPMC, she worked for a non-profit child advocacy center focused on investigating child abuse cases.
"I’m excited to take on the position and challenges of Director of Operations and continue to work with all the great faculty and staff in CCM,” says Kelly when asked about her promotion.
Kelly obtained a JD from Duquesne University and her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Pittsburgh. Outside of spending time with her family and work, she enjoys cooking and gardening.
