Lighthouse Central Florida, an Orlando-based nonprofit that provides rehabilitation services to those living with blindness or vision impairment (BVI), recently welcomed Samantha Lombardi to its Board of Directors.
Lombardi brings more than a decade of healthcare experience to her role on the board. She is currently an Operations Manager at HCA Healthcare and previously a Rehab Manager at HCA’s UCF Lake Nona Hospital.
“Samantha has demonstrated a drive to help others – even beyond her professional capacity,” said Kyle Johnson, President and CEO at Lighthouse Central Florida. “Welcoming Samantha to the board not only enhances its expertise, but also expands our opportunity to reach those who may not know about our services.”
Added Lombardi: “I came across an article about how Lighthouse was serving Central Florida’s BVI population during the pandemic and knew I wanted to get involved. I look forward to this opportunity to put both my clinical and operational skills to use while expanding my community outreach.”
Lombardi earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Masters in Occupational Therapy from Richard Stockton University, and is currently working toward a Masters in Business Administration from Capella University.
