Delaware State Treasurer Colleen Davis
Colleen C. Davis was elected State Treasurer on November 6, 2018. She was sworn into office on January 1, 2019. Colleen has a rich history of working for the First State. She served as the Treasurer for the Delaware Physician Assistant Advocacy Group (DAPA), as a member of the Advisory Board of QuiqMeds and on the Board of Delaware Maritime Education. Formerly she served as Board member & Translational Science Consultant for Forge Life Sciences, Co-Founder & VP of Pivotal Healthcare Consulting, Guest Lecturer for Arcadia & Philadelphia Universities and Christiana Care Emergency Medicine Residency Program. In conjunction with these achievements, Colleen has also served as a financial consultant to large medical institutions, as well as small independent practices across the nation. As such, she has created fiscal stability and improved positive patient outcomes, while saving millions of dollars in overall health care costs.
Colleen believes in a strong community and wants to help the State of Delaware improve its quality of life. She believes in retirement security, equitable healthcare, and economic opportunity for all. Over the years, she has volunteered locally, nationally and internationally. After Nepal was struck by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake in April 2015, she went to provide medical and disaster relief to people affected near Kathmandu and in the Himalayas.
As Colleen saw the realities of unbalanced health equity play out in areas overwhelmed by natural disaster as well as in her patients’ lives, she knew she wanted to do something impactful about it.
Colleen comes from a family of public servants including her grandmother, who served as recording secretary for the NAACP, both her parents who established a workforce development non-profit to prepare young adults for good paying jobs, and siblings who participate in non-profit boards, coach and volunteer locally in a variety of ways. After graduate school, Colleen married her high school beau, Anthony Davis, and they have three growing children. Colleen and Anthony are trying to cultivate a love of service, soccer and surfing in their children through their humanitarian travels throughout the world.
