How is the healthcare industry important to you personally? My Great Aunt Edna was a nurse educated in the 1920s. She shared her passion for nursing with me from a young age. I knew my path would be serving others in health and wellness.
How did the pandemic disrupt your specific role in the healthcare industry, and how did you adapt? I converted our in-office consultations to virtual consultations, which has worked out very well for our patients and for us. I also have waived the consultation fee, which has helped many people that are having financial struggles get the care they need.
