Our Paths

Over the four years I worked as an RA, I went to school part-time and earned a masters degree in health policy and management. During that period, every case I worked on was a brand-new learning experience. When you’re writing a case, you need to have the right information, compelling interviews, and interesting industry data; then it has to be put together in such a way that it becomes an effective learning tool. It’s a very cool process. As an RA, I came into an organization as an outsider and interviewed managers at every level of the company. That experience has given me a degree of confidence in my current work as a healthcare management consultant because I know I can go into a new situation, ask the right questions, and represent my firm well.”

Working as an RA gave me the opportunity to establish a professional and personal relationship with a well-known, highly regarded professor who was working in an area of great interest to me. At the same time, the position offered the flexibility I needed to develop and launch a start-up outside my duties as an RA. It was a great stepping stone to the next phase of my career as an entrepreneur.”
