After a distinguished career at the University of Pennsylvania Health System, Toni led Bancroft through a turnaround which saved it from bankruptcy. She also spearheaded fundraising for the new $75 million Welsh Campus in Mt.

Not sure what “Withology” means? That’s because we made it up. Extraordinary things happen through collaboration, influence and inspiration. No successful person has ever achieved their goals on their own. Host Brian Tierney sits down with the nation’s most successful business and industry leaders to discuss their personal journeys and unpack the stories and people who helped them get to where they are today. Withology explores the philosophy that Brian’s parents instilled in him at a young age: anything is possible with hard work and great people.
