Reflections

So many classmates have influenced me through their generosity of time, thoughtful comments, and interest in mutual success. One teammate in particular impressed me so much and had the ability to surprise me on multiple occasions. This individual is a retired army officer with a young family. His background and career journey are very different from mine. His sharing about how he led his company in discussions about George Floyd demonstrated his courage and compassion. He confided in me that he was so happy about family weekend because he was so proud to be part of the WEMBA program. I have had so many opportunities in my life and career. This classmate reminded me to be thankful, thoughtful and appreciative.

Before Fuqua

Before coming to Fuqua, I was an executive at a large, physician-owned practice in the Hudson Valley of NY. I am still in this role. My responsibilities include physician leadership and management and managing the population health activities of our accountable care organization.

After Fuqua

I am hopeful to take on a larger leadership role, beyond the clinical leadership that has defined my career. My goal is to apply my Fuqua education to help the success of my organization through a better understanding of general finance and accounting principles and the application of best practices in organizational leadership and strategy.
