Why did you decide to get involved with MGMA?

When I first became a medical practice manager, I was invited to attend the local MGMA meeting. I met professionals who wanted to help me succeed. Through their encouragement, I became a part of the leadership, which led me to Tennessee MGMA, and then on to MGMA. All along the way, I encountered mentors and lifelong friends.

What do you find most rewarding about volunteering for MGMA?

Volunteering for MGMA is rewarding to me because I can be a part of someone achieving their goals of certification and Fellowship.

How did you decide that practice management was the career for you?

Practice management sort of found me. I was a banker at that time, and met physicians who needed help with their financial statements. They were leaving a large group to form their own medical practice. As we met, they asked me if I would be interested in joining them to start their new practice.

What is the best tip you give to people who are just starting a career in practice management?

Join the local, state and national MGMA, and get involved. Find mentors who will invest in you. Become a certified medical practice manager. The knowledge that you will receive from studying the Body of Knowledge will help you every day at your job.

What is your favorite book or website or resource for practice managers?

For leadership, read John Maxwell. Read anything from Simon Sinek, especially “Start With Why”, Atul Gawande's “Better” and Shawn Achor's “The Happiness Advantage”. The MGMA Member Community is an invaluable resource for practice managers. You can join a community for your specialty to stay updated and share information with your peers.

How do you relax after a busy work week?

I enjoy reading, hiking and working on crafts, but the absolute best relaxation is spending time with my daughter, son-in-law and grandsons.
