Number of Years with Questcare:
7 years

In what ways does Questcare help you achieve a better work/life balance?
The training taught me how to multitask – not only in the ED but also at home.

How has Questcare helped you with professional growth and development?
Currently I am the Medical Director for scribe services – an opportunity I never imagined when I was in med school or residency. Through the training and professional development I’ve learned more about what it takes to be a good leader.

Tell us about your personal goals, aspirations, and interests outside of work.
Continue to stay fit — 6 hours of cardio/strength per week; would love to do a half marathon and triathlon sprint one day; would love to challenge myself with more yoga exercises; want to cook more when kids are older; want to climb mount Kilimanjaro one day; love to travel and see the world.

What brings you the most joy in life at work? At home?
Work: making a difference in patient care; practicing evidence-based medicine, satisfying patients, all while still meeting throughput benchmarks.
Home: seeing my kids, spending time with them, watching them grow and discover the world.

In what ways does Questcare support you both personally and professionally to help you better achieve your goals?
Personal support: flexible scheduling so that I may spend the maximum amount of time with my family. Professional support: Questcare challenges every one of its members to go beyond just showing up for shifts; Questcare calls us to be leaders at our home facilities and even at corporate level if possible.
