How long have you worked in healthcare, and in what areas?
I learned early on about healthcare. My mother is a retired physical therapist and when I was a little girl I would go with her in the afternoons and sit and watch her work with her homebound cerebral palsy patients. She was great with them and she encouraged and supported them and made them work hard to improve. When I was in college I initially started out pre-med but changed to public relations. I was the executive director of a healthcare nonprofit for 20 years and am very comfortable in the healthcare environment.
