Most recently, she served as senior vice president of finance at Spectrum Health, a not-for-profit hospital system based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The 14-hospital system has more than 31,000 team members, $9 billion in net revenue, a medical group and the nation’s third-largest provider-sponsored health plan. Previously, Ms. Flake served as CFO and chief compliance officer for Banner Health Medical Group and its 1,500-plus providers in six western states.

Ms. Flake earned a Bachelor of Science in nursing and a Master of Business Administration from Brigham Young University. She has served as a board member for several community and business organizations during her career. She and her husband, Jim, will relocate to Central Florida later this spring.
