Something Surprising to Know About Me

I love to hunt and fish.
How Did I Get Into HIM?
I loved working in Healthcare but knew I did not want to be hands on with the patients.  So when I found out about HIM I knew that was what I wanted to do.
Professional Advice:
Always network with others and never stop educating yourself.
“Choose a job you love and you'll never have to work a day in your life” - Confucius - David Forman.
