    in health care and medical school but enthralled with what I had learned in ESNS I continued the program into my senior year to truly solidify what I had learned and to feed my newfound interest for the complex intersection of science and business Former President F Gregory Campbell and Dr Arion arranged for me to spend my senior year working with health care executives from St Catherine s Hospital to plan for the building of a new St Catherine s Medical Center on Highway 50 to replace a crippled outdated building right off of Lake Michigan After a year of routine business meetings with Dr Arion and my fellow ESNS seniors and completing projects for the hospital s executives I presented my feasibility study for the new hospital to the ESNS board members of the hospital s executive team President Campbell and my fellow ESNS students I understand that some of my work and research was actually used in their final business plans During this time my direction shifted from medical school to the business of health care I quickly was hired by Accenture in Milwaukee and spent two years building my resume so that beginning in the fall of 2002 I could go to graduate school at the Medical University of South Carolina for my Master of Health Administration degree The rest is history Based on my diverse background my passion for health care my strong and diverse academic performance and practical real world experience including a graduate internship at Kenosha Hospital and Medical Center I was hired by the Henry Ford Health System and quickly escalated to a Director level position at Health Alliance Plan And believe it or not it all started because of some conversations during physics lab with Dr Arion about what I wanted for myself in the future I ve never looked back and I feel that there is no way my life and career would be what they are today without ESNS and the unwavering support and encouragement of Dr Arion throughout the journey Full circle Using ESNS skills in his current position After some reflection I realized that my current scope of responsibilities has come full circle with the skills I first learned in ESNS Here are some examples just to name a few Who knew that writing a mock business plan to start a water purification and bottling plant near the Ogallala Aquifer during my junior year would help me write the business strategy to expand Health Alliance Plan s Medicare Advantage product portfolio to increase market share among one of the only growing segments in Southeastern Michigan Who knew that the time I spent in ESNS just over nine years ago would help me become a young leader in one of the country s top 10 ranked health systems Who knew that learning how to read a financial statement and write a budget during my first ESNS class coupled with simple math I learned from my science classes would
