For over 15 years, I have been focused on Healthcare and Health Sciences — strategic planning and design with an emphasis on medical equipment, procurement, and transition/move planning services. I came into this line of work by coincidence – I was working in healthcare construction in Cincinnati and always had an interest in coming to Nashville. Before I knew it, I was transferring into a division that did medical equipment planning. I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but as I’ve always enjoyed the complexity of the healthcare sector, I ended up finding it very interesting! The opportunity to grow and build my passion brought me to Mazzetti. It is a great company that has a vision to grow and expand – the opportunity to lead multi-disciplinary teams, identify new business opportunities, and contribute to this growth is attractive to me.
One of my most memorable projects was my first big hospital project in Middle Tennessee, which is now St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital. I spent over two years there coordinating over 20,000 pieces of equipment for a 7-story, 550,000sf facility with all modalities and services. It was truly an eye opening and learning experience. While it had so many challenges from just-in-time deliveries to coordinating the MRIs in the facility, it was some of the most fun I’ve ever had on a project team. “They” say experience is the greatest of teachers; this one was truly a great teacher.
