BRITTANY RISTUCCI WARNERâ€™s interest in health care began when her grandfather was diagnosed with cancer. â€śI would frequently visit him in the hospital and I will never forget his nurse, Hazel,â€ť Warner says. â€śShe made him smile and laugh on his worst days, bringing such positivity to a fatal diagnosis.â€ť Thatâ€™s why Warner volunteered at Ohio State University Medical Center for several years while she was working on her undergraduate degree, and went on to earn her MBA at University of Illinois. She has since dedicated her professional career to improving the health care delivery model around the Midwestâ€”including NorthShore University HealthSystem and University of Chicago Medical Center, and as Director of Business Development for Karyo Biologics. She then started a consulting firm to assist private health care facilities. Her most recent venture brought her to Winnetka where she and her husband, Dr. Jeremy Warner, partnered to open Warner Institute, a private medical practice that provides reconstructive and aesthetic surgery. Throughout her life and career, giving back has remained a top priority for Warner. She and her husband volunteer a significant amount of time to Face The Future Foundation, providing facial plastic reconstructive surgery for disadvantaged young people with complex facial deformities in Nepal each year. And, she was recently appointed to the board of directors of The Volunteer Center of N.E. Metro Chicago. â€śYou will never work a day in your life if you love what you do,â€ť she says.
