Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri announced Julie Leverenz, of Hannibal, was recently appointed to the organization’s board of directors.

Leverenz is the Vice President, Patient Experience for Hannibal Regional Healthcare System and is responsible for supporting its mission by providing a positive patient experience. In addition to her 29 years of experience in the healthcare field, Leverenz has held leadership roles in Girl Scouts. She served as President of the Girl Scout Council of the Becky Thatcher Area and oversaw the merger with Girl Scouts of Greater St. Louis in 2007, which resulted in the formation of Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri.

“I was a Girl Scout and have become successful because of that foundation,” Leverenz said. “I want to give back in a way that’s meaningful.”
