Founder and Principal
Paula Morgan put the “Morgan” in Morgan Consulting Resources when she founded the firm in 1995. Since then, she has matched numerous talented healthcare executives with leading healthcare companies. Before founding Morgan Consulting Resources, Paula served in senior leadership positions with Sierra Health Services (now part of UnitedHealth Group), the largest managed care organization in Nevada.
Along with matching talent to organizations, Paula adds value to the healthcare industry through her involvement in numerous organizations, such as the American College of Medical Practice Executives, the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA), and America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP). Of particular importance to her is the nursing profession. Paula has helped raise funds for nursing scholarships for aspiring nurses who would otherwise be unable to pursue their professional dreams, and she is an active member of the Southern Nevada Medical Industry Coalition Education Task Force, focused on issues around nursing education.
Paula has continued her education via Executive Courses at Harvard and Wharton. She is often an expert presenter for regional and national health care organizations on topics related to effective hiring practices and career opportunities in the health care marketplace.
Principal and Senior Vice President of Business Development
Lu is one of our resident experts on health insurance products—and the challenges associated with finding the right employees for a rapidly expanding organization. Just ask her what it was like to help manage a division of UnitedHealth group that grew from 10 to approximately 1,800 employees in just six years.
Before joining Morgan Consulting Resources, Lu held executive-level sales and product positions with OptumHealth Specialty Benefits (a division of UnitedHealth Group) and ING Employee Benefits Global Network. She knows what it takes to thrive in a competitive market, having managed a business unit with responsibility for both top- and bottom-line results.
When she takes a break from her work, Lu loves to spend time outdoors in the California Sierras indulging in her passion for skiing, golfing, hiking, and floating down the Truckee River with her husband in their raft. And during snowstorms, she loves to bake cookies and cozy up by the fireplace in their log cabin.
Co-Managing Partner/Executive Recruiter
An executive recruiter has to be curious. She has to know what makes candidates tick and what clients really want in that elusive ideal employee. That’s why Rosie is so good at what she does—she asks the questions that need to be asked, and delights in learning new things.
She also really knows the healthcare industry. Before joining Morgan Consulting Resources, Rosie spent over 15 years focused on health benefits, managed care, and worker’s compensation. She created new product lines, improved the efficiency of existing programs, and—what she’s most known for—developed people who worked under her to help them realize their potential.
Beyond her work at Morgan Consulting Resources, Rosie focuses much of her energy on improving her community. She is a founding member of Nevada Executive Women in Healthcare, and she works to improve educational opportunities for children in the Clark County School District in Las Vegas. And whenever she gets the chance, she spends time outdoors and makes a point of getting away from the Las Vegas desert to enjoy quiet sunrises on the beach.
A recruiter who’s been a hiring executive, Lynn brings the client perspective to her role with Morgan Consulting, along with her experience managing the recruiting and selection division for the City of Las Vegas Human Resources Department. The varying hiring needs of the city’s 22 departments honed the skills Lynn brings to executive search. She’s keenly aware that recruiting the right person for a health care leadership role is a combination of art and science.
Lynn’s expertise lies in her ability to help clients define their priorities and the necessary qualifications and desired talents in their candidate. Her Bachelor’s degree (UNLV) in Workforce Development provides a framework for her strategic perspective on the recruitment, selection and onboarding processes to building great organizations through engaging the right talent.
She knows what it takes to succeed in the executive ranks and is driven by being the best at whatever she does. The mother of two grown daughters, Lynn enjoys the outdoors and on the weekend, you’ll likely find her bicycling some more than 100 miles or riding Harleys throughout the West. Growing up in San Diego imprinted the beach on her psyche and it remains her ‘happy place’.
Co-Managing Partner/Executive Recruiter
Lisa became Morgan Consulting Resources’ first mile-high recruiter when she opened the firm’s Denver office in 2004. Before that, she worked in the firm’s San Francisco offices for four years. And before that, she worked as an investment professional, most recently with Montgomery Asset Management, where she built trusting relationships with high-net-worth clients to help manage their portfolios.
The experience of earning the trust of clients with a great deal at stake served Lisa well as she transitioned into recruiting. Today, Lisa loves how she gets to know each candidate she works with and helps him or her find the best fit—that perfect job that matches the candidate’s talents, priorities, and lifestyle factors with the needs of the healthcare client. She looks beyond the resume and position requirements to see how skills and experience, applied in a new way, can create something well beyond the expected.
Lisa is an adventure traveler who gets excited about things like fording a river in the middle of the night to reach nesting endangered turtles, or snowshoeing off-trail in the Rocky Mountains. Her newest adventure is parenting two adopted children who have stolen her heart and transformed her life.

With an eye for detail, Donna has a talent for coordinating complex processes from internal operations to executive search.
In 2012, Donna relocated from her hometown of Las Vegas to the Pictured Rocks National Lake Shore in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. With two kids in college in California and roots in Las Vegas, trips to the West are always an adventure. She and her husband indulge in improvement projects and gardening with seeds from around the world. They tend to get carried away, which leaves them with plenty of plants to share with members of the community.
Vice President of Business Development
Ronni is so passionate about executive recruiting and the work Morgan Consulting Resources is doing that she left a retired life of leisure to join the firm in 2012. She has brought considerable expertise to the team, with a background in founding and running her own search practice (Staff One Search, which she operated from 1983 to 2009). She has served as president of several groups, including the Arizona Staffing Professionals Association, the Women’s Executive Association of Metro Phoenix, and the Arizona Business Alliance, and has held directorships with a number of association boards, including the Arizona Chamber of Commerce, the Arizona’s Economic Security Advisory Council, and the National Association of Women Business Owners. Ronni also has been designated as a Certified Personnel Consultant (CPC) by the National Association of Personnel Services.
While successful as a business leader, Ronni has always made civic and community service a priority. She has been involved with numerous non-profit organizations that help people in crisis, animals, and children. One of Ronni’s most rewarding activities was to serve on the board that advised the organization Arizona Bridge to Independent Living, which helps people with disabilities return to the workforce as temporary help.
She may no longer be retired, but Ronni still spends plenty of time with her husband, her children, her grandchildren, and her dogs. She enjoys hiking, RVing, golfing, bowling, waterskiing, and reading.
