Did you know you wanted to go into the risk profession? If not, what was your journey to get here?
No. I got exposure working in management consulting and started working with financial risk management. I then got a chance to continue working with healthcare risk management, first as an auditor then project manager and now implementing ERM.
How long have you been working in the risk profession?
Has managing risk changed over the course of your career? If so, how?
Yes. It has evolved from a financial focus to a clinical-centered approach. Now it is enterprise-wide, trying to break down silos across operations and delivery of care.
What advice would you give to someone who is about to start their career in the risk profession?
Do not go alone. Take leadership with you. Take the challenge of conquering one risk at a time, do not shy from breaking it into small multiples, and listen to all the stories your technology/data is telling. More time listening, even greater time planning and strategizing because executing a will be a breeze if you are aligned from top to front line.
Do you have a personal motto? If so, what is it?
Change is Good! Try to lead it when you can. Those discoveries will be the story of life.
