Cally Cripp’s struggle with debilitating endometriosis helped steer her into a career in behavioral health.
“Over the years, Cally has witnessed people like herself suffering horribly, with no outside sources proactively addressing the corresponding impact of chronic pain on mental health,” colleague Keri Christiansen says. “It became Cally’s goal to help her community, connecting them with the services provided by AllHealth and other mental health organizations.”
For the past two years, Cripps has facilitated awareness through advocacy efforts as Colorado’s representative to Worldwide EndoMarch, the largest international coordinated endometriosis coalition in the world. Her work is focused on advocating for funding for public awareness and research into endometriosis, which affects 200 million, as well as for changes in treatment and diagnosis.
Tasked with leading a system-wide implementation of Smart Care, a clinical health care software designed by providers for providers, Cripps led a lean team through a complex process.
“The outcome was extraordinary,” Christiansen says. “Far greater efficiency with full integration for the caregiver and the client; management, point of care and scheduling tools; and integrations with outside resources that further enhance caregiver/client engagement.”
Her No. 1 goal: “To make an impact within the communities I serve.”
