The Cherry Blossom Team is committed to providing comprehensive, compassionate care to aging adults. Each day, we lead with expertise and empathy.
Bryan Cordeau is the Vice President of Cherry Blossom PACE Finance. His focus is to ensure the financial success and longevity of the program to better serve the members and the community of Northern Virginia.
Cordeau has over a decade of experience working in healthcare at both Kaiser Permanente and CVS/Aetna. During his time at Kaiser Permanente, he oversaw Medicare Advantage for five states and the District of Columbia. Prior to that he had increasing levels of responsibility at CVS/Aetna. Having worked at one of the largest integrated health systems in the country, Cordeau believes the PACE model is the best way to serve seniors.
When not working, he enjoys golfing, skiing, reading a good book, and walking his Bernese mountain dog, Albert.
With over 25 years of experience in hospital operations, process improvement, strategic planning, and patient advocacy, Bernie Loren is the Day Center Manager for Cherry Blossom PACE. He is responsible for the management of personnel and coordination of services within the center.
Loren has proven his administrative leadership in four separate hospitals within one of the country’s largest healthcare systems. He assisted the organization in the development of its first senior care nursing unit specifically designed to meet the healthcare needs of seniors. This experience brought to light the unique needs of seniors and led Loren to join a PACE program in Michigan as the Day Center Manager.
His personal experience helping to keep his parents, both in their mid-80s, living independently has added to his passion to provide quality care to seniors. He is married and is the proud father of two daughters who are both working in healthcare.
Dr. Racheli Schoenburg is very excited to join the PACE team as Medical Director. She will provide primary care to participants alongside the rest of the PACE team. In her role, she will focus on communication within the team as well as with other medical specialists to make sure participants receive care that best matches their health care goals and needs. She will also provide clinical guidance to the PACE team and work to ensure quality of care for the program.
Dr. Schoenburg attended at Georgetown University School of Medicine. At Georgetown, she was able to explore her passion for promoting health, focusing on social justice and healthcare policy. This led her to the Boston area, where she completed her family medicine residency at Tufts University-Cambridge Health Alliance. During residency, she became even more passionate about working with older adults and pursued a geriatrics fellowship through the Harvard Medical School Multicampus Geriatric Fellowship Program.
Dr. Schoenburg also has clinical interests in integrative medicine, particularly how to integrate mind-body practices into primary care; she completed a 200-hour course through the Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine. She believes in team-based care and the importance of community building in order to nurture strong relationships among staff and participants. As a geriatrician, her focus is on helping her patients maintain function and independence as long as possible.
She grew up in Northern Virginia and is excited to be closer to her family and friends. When she is not working, she enjoys hiking, yoga, and cooking.
