Born into a family of entrepreneurs, I’ve been studying business since I started working for my dad’s trucking company at the age of 13. I always knew I wanted to be a business owner, but I didn’t know exactly what type of businesses I would start until later.
I was drawn to healthcare because I found joy in helping people and I decided to become a nurse with the intention of eventually starting a business in healthcare.
I built my nursing career in public health where I served on countless committees and boards so I could learn more about the business side of healthcare.
My work in public health honed my skills in case management, strategic planning, policy development, process improvement, workflow, and more.
I went to graduate school while I worked in public health to get my masters degree in nursing administration, which is basically a business degree for nurses.
I learned about consulting in one of my favorite classes in graduate school during a time when the organization where I was working experienced a crisis that led to hiring a bunch of consultants to fix the problem.
It was then that I realized I had been unofficially consulting for a long time and I genuinely enjoyed this type of work. At that point I knew I wanted to start a healthcare consulting business.
I spent the next few years reading all the literature I could find about consulting, researching the needs I could potentially fill, learning more about business, testing out my ideas, and completing training programs in the areas of business I needed to improve on (I sucked at marketing). I also worked with several mentors and coaches to help me identify gaps I needed to fill to build the business of my dreams.
As a detail-oriented, big-picture problem solver with over a decade of experience in the healthcare field, I understand exactly how to navigate business growth.
My analytical and results-oriented approach has allowed me to make a difference, not only in my own business, but for my clients as well.
I thrive on setting and achieving goals and serving my clients. Implementing processes that support business growth is both personally and professionally rewarding to me.
My top strengths are analytical, maximizer, achiever, responsibility, and self-assurance.
