Anne anticipates the needs of others before they know they need assistance and loves working for a department that acknowledges and celebrates individual contributions. She leads her colleagues in developing standardized processes to increase efficiency and accuracy. Mrs. Tomasello has been in the business of managing projects all her life, from a young age ensuring she had a “go” bag ready with her most valuable toys to executing large scale art installations and most recently as the Project Manager of the Rowan University Covid-19 Vaccine Center.
Mrs. Tomasello’s integration of project management to the planning and execution of a Covid-19 Vaccine Center helped to create a model for other New Jersey Vaccine Centers. Always at the forefront in her integrative management and communication style are quality, safety, and customer service. She makes it a point to offer encouragement to and express gratitude for everyone she interacts with and she hopes her leadership and gratitude are contagious.
