What is your field of specialty, and how did you come to work in the industry? My field of specialty is technology with a growing focus on virtual assistance and artificial intelligence. I have worked on a vast amount of projects in various industries - Healthcare Innovation being the latest. I have always been fascinated by technology and its effect on people's daily lives, its ability to connect individuals far and close, and the way it simply makes life easier and more efficient. My passion has led me into my career.

Whether it's assignments or simply feedback on making processes better, everyone is always open to constructive criticism and a collaborative work environment to create the most functional educational experience possible.
What advice would you give Redlands students? Develop relationships with your teachers. The teachers at Redlands want to help you, see that you are working hard to develop your character and build a better you. Many of the teachers at Redlands come from strong backgrounds in large companies and consulting firms. Being a bi-product of their teachings and overall life experience has enhanced my ability to make a decision in the stressful work environment many of us are entrenched in.

The favorite aspect of my current job is that I have the ability to change peoples' lives through technology - It's my passion and the reason why I look forward to coming to work every single day. My current position single handedly stands responsible to make a physician's time more efficient so that they no longer have to worry about a number of patients they see but rather the experience behind it and bringing compassion back into healthcare.
