I came right into a facility out of the gates. Within the first year I went from one building to five buildings. I control my own destiny with Healthcare Services Group. At each level you gain more autonomy and more independence. You take on the responsibility that that is your business. You have to staff it accordingly, do all the supply ordering. You make your own decisions with multimillion dollar companies every day. So you get the financial resources of a big company and the independence of almost being in business for yourself. In any way that you can positively affect change and improve the quality of the service that we provide, the corporate office is always willing to listen. You will find your own story with Healthcare Services Group. Over the years I’ve seen people with quite varied backgrounds come in and be highly successful in our organization. We’ll give them the tools to do it they just have to have the self motivation and the drive to want to succeed. I went to college in Colorado on a baseball scholarship. I was fortunate enough to get drafted by the Cleveland Indians, broke my hand and had to retire so I started to look for a new job. I got my Bachelor’s in Finance so it was really right up my alley, handling money and also handling a business. I attended the University of Mississippi where I majored in journalism. I’ve done medical management, durable medical equipment sales. I went through Hurricane Katrina, got laid off, so I had a friend that introduced me to Healthcare Services Group. I was sold on the fact that I could move up within the company. Healthcare allows us to be individuals and Healthcare allows us to grow despite where we came from. The biggest reward on a day to day basis is positively affecting the lives of our residents. Every day brings something new and that’s the best part. It’s a great organization, and it’s been a good ride and I plan to be here for a lot longer.
