Brief description of your professional expertise/experience/reason for choosing your field:
I have worked in healthcare quality for the last 25 years. My last 15 years were with Ascension / Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare. I truly enjoy working on improving quality systems. Working to eliminate waste, rework, and helping care providers achieve excellent patient outcomes, I feel, is my calling. Figuring out how to work smarter not harder! Kenosha Community Health Center is the perfect healthcare organization where I feel I can use all my skills and abilities to maximum potential. I can already tell that I am so blessed to work with this great team! Thanks for the opportunity!
Why did you choose to work for Kenosha Community Health Center, Inc.?
I wanted to work in and help improve the quality of care in my community. I have always had to commute to other communities to go to work. So, for the first time, I am excited to be able to work in my community and help improve healthcare.
