Leaders need to understand that we need the help of others to succeed.

Why did you decide to get involved with MGMA?

What initially drove me to get involved with MGMA was their unique networking opportunities to empower healthcare professionals from many different healthcare backgrounds. Having the ability to meet creative driving professionals in the health care realm has encouraged me to continue this pass to seek out other opportunities to contribute in a broader way.


What do you find most rewarding about volunteering for MGMA?

The most rewarding aspect of volunteering was the ability to make lasting friendships. It was exciting to meet other MHA students and share the knowledge that MGMA was able to provide during the Annual Conference.

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

My enthusiasm for new knowledge was my key driver in choosing to expand on my current role as a nurse practitioner to practice management. I see the opportunity to see both sides of healthcare from a clinical perspective and a management perspective as a huge advantage.  

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

The best tip that I can leave is to know you have people in your corner. Career growth can be challenging and at times you may feel that you are alone on this adventure, but you need to have those that support you: colleagues, family, friends, and mentors.

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

The best resource that I received for a resource was a book by Stephen R. Covey “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”. This book helps us understand that each problem can be seen from different perspectives. Leaders need to understand that we need the help of others to succeed while also building others up to reach their own goals.

How do you relax after a busy work week?

I love to explore with my son. Finding a hidden restaurant that no one knows about or a local trail with a cool waterfall is a few of the ways that I relax after a busy work week. If I have a few extra days, we love to travel to new places and mark them off our bucket list.  

What is your top tip for maintaining work/life balance?

DON’T take work home with you. When you are at home you are with your family. When you are at work that is your time to devote to work. Although it can be easy to take work home with you, it can become a habit and can be detrimental to your health. Having clear boundaries to work and life is crucial.
