What inspired you to enter the health care industry?

I spent most of my career in roles being a self-starter of new business and ventures. I enjoy building services and programs from scratch and, many times, out of my comfort zone. Doing so made me stronger, gave me valuable experience and allowed me to be more comfortable in new environments. While these attributes are transferable to all industries, I personally chose health care to make a difference and help others better navigate, stay healthy, and more easily understand the complex nature of our health care delivery system.

Why did you come to URAC?

I came to URAC to grow, diversify and expand the organization in new markets and help improve the quality of care domestically and internationally.

What do you find most rewarding about your job?

Shortly after starting at URAC, my family had a very scary and serious health diagnosis. Having the support of my colleagues – and their clinical expertise to help guide our journey – had a great impact on me. At a much deeper level than I could ever appreciate before, I realized how critical our work is.  I also really enjoy helping my co-workers succeed and grow personally and professionally, and find great satisfaction in helping our clients strengthen their quality of care and safety.

What motivates you to do your best at work every day?

I love working as a team to do great things together. #OneURAC
