“When I started in healthcare, my goal was to get a job in the front office for a year and move on to a different career path.
By taking that first step into the unknown, it led me down the road of success. In my 30 year journey, I developed a passion for health care and I believe it all started in the front office.”
"Go as far as you can see; when you get there, you’ll be able to see further.” -Thomas Carlyle
