Justine Medina Tamillo

Vice President, Business Development

Justine works to increase growth within our current programs, as well as identifying new business growth opportunities externally. Justine has served the PACE community in several leadership positions over the last decade, most recently as the Senior Vice President for PACE Operations of a new PACE organization with an aggressive growth plan looking to open many PACE centers in multiple states by 2025, focusing on suburban and rural communities. Prior to working for Kinship Health, Justine had served as the Assistant Vice President, Senior Care Services, for AltaMed Health Services in Los Angeles providing operational leadership, strategic planning and expansion projects for the PACE program centers in LA and Orange Counties. In 2012, she was the first Redwood Coast PACE Director at Humboldt Senior Resource Center, leading the agency to implement the first PACE program in a rural county in California.

Before PACE, she spent 15 years in various leadership positions for the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN). As the Director, Professional Practice and Programs, she led the e-learning, nursing standards, research and public policy teams bringing cutting edge resources to more than 100,000 critical care nurses. She has held leadership positions as a volunteer, association partner and staff with both nursing and physician professional organizations focusing on leadership, standards setting, professional education and development of nurses’ and physicians’ practice.

Justine holds an MS in Gerontology/Critical Care, Clinical Nurse Specialist from UCSF, and a BA in Molecular Biology from UC Berkeley. Justine is excited to be back working in the Bay Area, having grown up and spent much of her early career here and now having the opportunity to reunite with family and friends.
