Something Surprising to Know About Me
I played College Softball.
 
How Did I Get Into HIM?
I got into HIM because a career in healthcare has always been the goal for me. I am very analytical so when I found out about this career path, I knew it was the perfect fit for me.
 
Professional Advice
Work for the job title you want, not for the job title that you have. If your goal is to make it to the top of your career, work every single day to achieve those goals. Do more than what is asked and preserve through every trial.
