I had learned so much through my work, but the world continues to change rapidly, and I felt there were several areas where I could use an update so I decided to pursue an MBA at Bentley. Healthcare is also changing rapidly. This is good because the management structures in healthcare are very antiquated. We're helping people when they are most vulnerable. And we need to operate efficiently to keep the mission going.
