Dr. Farquhar is the Vice President of Quality, Research and Measurement for URAC an independent, nonprofit organization which is a well-known leader in promoting health care quality through its accreditation, education, and measurement programs.

As an expert in her field, Dr. Farquhar speaks in universities and conferences on the field of quality, performance measurement, nursing and public policy. Dr. Farquhar credits her success to her passion for helping people and the opportunity to be able to combine both her health care and business expertise in the most optimal way. In the future, Dr. Farquhar will be completing her six sigma certification which will further help URAC grow. In her free time Dr. Farquhar is an avid supporter of The Humane Society of the United States, the ASPCA, the Art League of Ocean City Center for the Arts and the Nature Conservancy.
