"Although I was working 50 to 60 hours a week, I wanted to go back to school full time, so I enrolled in the University of Wisconsin HIMT program. I did this because I thought, you know what—I could be the change in this scenario, and I wanted to help patients have a better future... the sky’s the limit once you get through the programs. And what you will learn, who you will learn it from, and who you will learn it with, will leave a lasting impact on your life and your career.”
