She also has led on the implementation of many significant change and reform programmes across the full range of health services.  Laverne was appointed to the Board of the HSE in 2011 by the Minister for Health and in July 2013 she was appointed as a Director to the HSE Directorate.  An accountant by profession, Laverne also holds an MSc and she has just recently completed a Professional Diploma in Corporate Governance at the Michael Smurfit Business School in University College Dublin.
