Where did you receive your higher education, and in what discipline did you focus?
“I earned a degree in Electronics Engineering Technology from ITT- Technical Institute. I am currently attending Frederick Community College for Nursing with plans to transfer to Towson University to become a Physician Assistant.”
How has your education helped you achieve your career goals?
“My education has helped me understand that I am able to do anything with hard work and dedication. My engineering degree placed me with a medical device company that introduced me to a hospital setting and allowed me to see the importance of healthcare, which led me to open ComForcare. My nursing degree and eventually becoming a P.A. will allow me to apply the skills that I have learned to enhance the quality of care to patients in clinical settings as well as in my own business.”
What fascinates you most about the healthcare industry?
“It is forever changing. You will never have the same day and each day presents a new challenge.”
What is the legacy that you would like your business to leave behind?
“To provide the best quality of care to every patient we come in contact with. I want my company to differentiate from other companies in the industry by always going the extra mile for each and every patient. I tell everyone in my company that circumstances change and if we live long enough, we will need care and will want to be treated with dignity, respect and compassion. I believe this in itself will leave a legacy and set a standard. The most important thing is consistency and I will not settle for anything less.”
