Helping People

Day to Day

I don't know if I would say there is a typical day for me, but at the end of the day what I spent a lot of time on is creating partnerships with providers, hospitals, nursing facilities, and other similar locations to really develop a system for providing the highest quality, cost efficient health care for our members. I assist in creating partnerships with other organizations. For example, we work with the Vegas Golden Knights on some food drive activities to gather food for those in need.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for high school students

Understanding what programs exist out there is very important. I highly encourage doing a residency in a graduate program, but even before that you should start trying to shadow to understand what that specific career path may look like and make decisions off of that. The earlier you start, the better you're off. Don't be scared to fail. Fail early and fail cheap. The second thing I'd say is focusing on your education and making sure you have the knowledge set to be successful in your career.

Recommended Education

My career is not related to what I studied. I'd recommend this path instead:

Any business-related majors
MBA, MHA, CPA, PhD in something business or leadership
CTA (Accounting)
ACHE (American College of Healthcare Executives)


The Noise I Shed

From Society in General:

"I was working on a project with the chief nursing officer. She wasn't having a good day and I had a miscalculation for a project. When I went to own up to it, she began talking about finding a different opportunity that might work best for me."

Challenges I Overcame



What do you enjoy doing on your free time?

Asked by Anthony at Roadtrip Nation

My wife and I love to go hiking. We were up in Mount Charleston last weekend and we also have an almost 9 year old German Shepard that hikes with us. Our favorite trip together was when we flew to Iceland for 11 days & did a variety of activities.
