I have a passion for health. It’s powerful role in the quality of one’s life has always drawn my interest. This curiosity and passion has lead me to some incredible opportunities. In Madrid, I volunteered at a local public hospital observing the patient-doctor dynamic. As a member of the two most at-risk groups combating HIV, working in Southwest Michigan with a local grassroots organization taught me the significance of education and prevention in behavioral health. Working as a health educator with a prominent medical clinic in the nation’s capital opened my eyes to the needs of Washington’s most vulnerable residents. Now, as a physician recruiter at a rapidly growing healthcare company that is disrupting the archaic delivery system, I am feeling inspired. Inspired to combine my experiences into a vision. A vision that can lead people to live better, healthier, and happier lives. This vision is a public-private partnership organization focusing on improving healthcare outcomes of populations suffering from three chronic illnesses: diabetes, hypertension, and HIV. This partnership would be formed through a combination of government grants and corporate sponsors with a focus on population health and helping people feel at their best.
Though I am very passionate about creating this organization, I acknowledge that I do not have any entrepreneurial experience. This is where StartingBloc comes in. I will gather with 99 other fellow from around the world for an intensive 5-day institute. The goal of the institute is to provide burgeoning entrepreneurs, activists and innovators, like myself, with resources that will leave us inspired and better able to create an impact. I am already excited to think of ways to give back!
