President/Owner of Arc Home Care
Member of NAWBO Programs Committee
Why did you decide to own your own business?
After 15 years of developing general management and executive leadership skills in the medical device industry, I decided that the time was right to try build a business on my own. When I learned about homecare, I knew it was the right industry where I could leverage my healthcare background to provide high quality post-acute care in a rapidly growing market and also be able contribute to the Twin Cities community.
When and why did you join NAWBO-MN?
I joined NAWBO in August 2016. I was looking for educational opportunities to learn how to become a successful business owner and an opportunity to meet other business minded peers.
What do you enjoy about being on the NAWBO-MN board or committee? Would you recommend it to members? If so, why?
I joined the Program committee and it has been a great way to learn more about NAWBO's inspiring mission and strategy. I have appreciated getting to know NAWBO's board and seeing first-hand the commitment they have to fostering a strong, active MN chapter. Participating in the committee provides additional networking opportunities. An extra bonus is the opportunity to learn from external experts in planning for specific programs.
