Grow Your

"I have worked in healthcare for 14 years with the last 4 years in a leadership position. My career path has been extremely non-traditional, but I’ve always desired to complete my bachelor’s degree to further growth and leadership opportunities in higher level positions while remaining true to an industry I love. I hope to leave a footprint on the healthcare industry through process improvement rooted in Six Sigma Black Belt + Organizational Leadership methodologies."
