Maureen E. Schafer works hard and always wants to win. Growing up an athlete, this mentality was instilled in her at a young age.
After working in many sectors, Schafer has spent the past 15 years focused on health care. Schafer played a major role in opening the Cleveland Clinic Nevada and launching the UNLV School of Medicine, serving as founding chief of staff in the launch of Las Vegas’ first four-year public allopathic medical school. Among her many achievements, donating a kidney to an anonymous 51-year-old dad in Ohio is her proudest moment.
