Tina Stover '93/'13 MBA
Tina Stover is dedicated to success. After graduating with an undergraduate degree in Medical Technology in 1993, she worked for 13 years in the Microbiology Lab at WellSpan York Hospital. She then had the opportunity to coordinate the Quality and Performance Improvement Activities for Microbiology. In 2006, she left Microbiology and became the Operations Manager for the entire laboratory at WellSpan York Hospital. After five years in this role, she realized that it would benefit her career if she went back to school, and she enrolled in the MBA program at York College, juggling a busy family life with her studies. While enrolled as an MBA student, she was also involved in the York Hospital Medical Lab Science Program as a member of the advisory board and as an instructor for topics in their management series (quality management and lab finance).
She currently still serves in these roles. Stover has reaped the benefits of her dedication to furthering her education as she is now the Administrative Director for the laboratory. She said that YCP faculty have played an important part in her life and career. Lindy Harrison, Ph.D., taught Stover Organic Chemistry and showed her how to use critical thinking skills inside and outside the classroom. Dave Greisler, Ph.D., lectured about Operations Management as part of Stover’s graduate program. He became a mentor and encouraged her to speak her mind and to think differently. She particularly appreciated his candor and his genuine concern for his students. She said, "The classroom environment at York College was a safe place to share opinions, no matter how different they were. It was truly a confidence-builder in my life, and has greatly influenced how I do my job today."
