Your board member title:
Membership Chair-Elect
Why you chose to join ACHE and serve on the SFHEF board:
In the transition from the clinical/research side of healthcare to healthcare administration, I was exposed to number of organizations. When evaluating these organizations, ACHE provided a welcoming atmosphere along with providing answers to administrative questions through education events, journal publications and online resources. These benefits were enhanced as I transitioned from student associate to member and ultimately as a Fellow.
Service on the board had been had been on my radar for some time. I had contemplating a Member-At-Large position on the board, but was approached by our President-Elect about the possibility of serving as Membership Chair. After a few conversations, Jorge explained his vision for SFHEF and the role he wanted me to play and I accepted.
Two unique things about me that most people don’t know about:
Many people do not know that I used my biomechanical engineering degree to work in the research field with Spinal Cord Injured participants at the University of Miami: The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis. This included training participants on walking robots and electrical stimulation to enhance function along with motion analysis similar to the computer graphics use in movies and computer gaming.
I have been a SCUBA diver for almost 20 years. I still like to reef dive but now I have begun to be more interested in wreck diving. In fact diving, was the reason that I chose to move to South Florida. Not many places to dive in Kentucky.
