WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO GET INVOLVED WITH MGMA? 

I belonged to both ACHE and MGMA as a graduate student.  Once I started my career in group practice, I found MGMA to be the most beneficial.

WHAT DO YOU FIND MOST REWARDING ABOUT VOLUNTEERING FOR MGMA?

I just enjoy feeling like I can contribute, even in small ways.

HOW DID YOU DECIDE THAT PRACTICE MANAGEMENT WAS THE CAREER FOR YOU?  

I entered college as a pre-med/biology major.  It didn’t take too long into my freshman year to realize I didn’t enjoy the classes and couldn’t see myself on the front lines of medicine.  I knew I wanted to do something in healthcare, so I stuck with the major.  Leadership roles and opportunities that I experienced in college pointed me towards a more “behind the scenes” focus, and healthcare administration was the perfect fit.

WHAT IS THE BEST TIP YOU GIVE TO PEOPLE WHO ARE JUST STARTING A CAREER IN PRACTICE MANAGEMENT?  

It sounds simple, but my biggest piece of advice is to be yourself.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BOOK OR WEBSITE OR RESOURCE FOR PRACTICE MANAGERS?  

I recommend What Exceptional Leaders Know by Tracy Spears & Wally Schmader.

 

WHAT IS YOUR TOP TIP FOR MAINTAINING WORK/LIFE BALANCE? 

My husband travels frequently for his job and our 10 and 14-year-old boys both play competitive basketball. One is on a travel baseball team as well.  It’s highly unusual for there to be a day when one of them doesn’t have a practice or game.  Their schedules force me to complete the workday by a certain time and not get pulled back in after-hours or on the weekends.   I’m also extremely lucky to have bosses that are truly supportive of work/life balance. If you’re struggling with this, schedule activities for yourself that you can’t back out of!
