What inspired you to enter the health care industry?
I started working in health care right after my graduate studies because of my curiosity about biology and chemistry, especially within the context of patient care. I’ve stayed exclusively within this arena for my entire career because I began to realize that my professional and personal successes were not only helping the companies that I worked for grow but through those successes could come innovations and ground-breaking solutions for patients to beat cancer and other serious ailments across the world.
Why did you come to URAC?
I joined URAC to further my experience in health care by learning how accreditation can help organizations provide better patient care, along with higher quality and lower costs.
What do you find most rewarding about your job?
I believe that every URAC-accredited client has demonstrated improved quality of care for patients and often developing improved processes. So I very much value each day I can share our company vision with new health care organizations and ultimately improve the lives of patients throughout the care continuum.
What motivates you to do your best at work every day?
Ultimately, we all serve patients and are committed to seeing their conditions and quality of life improve. How could I not feel motivated performing my role at URAC with this reward for constantly stiving to do my very best work each day?
