Working in academic healthcare allows me help shape the future of the medical field. Many of my projects allow me to play a role in the development of new and exciting educational models that change the way physicians are trained, and therefore how they practice. The most rewarding aspect of this work comes from comments such as the one below that I receive from my clients:

'You played a pivotal role in getting us to this point, which we deeply appreciate. You will always be part of the early roots of what we envision as a very successful program that changes the landscape of healthcare in our region and beyond. Thank you! It truly was an achievement on the part of each one who played an important role on the team in preparation for the big ask.'

—Gwen Matthews, M.S.N., M.Sc., M.B.A., President and CEO, Ukiah Valley Medical Center
