    University of Central Florida; Project Manager | Enterprise Program Management Office | Rochester Regional Health. Years of Fellowship: 2018 - 2019. “The Fellowship Program has been the single most impactful experience of my career. It allowed me to explore new areas of healthcare that I hadn’t previously explored, hone my technical skills, and develop genuine relationships with leaders that have shaped me into a better leader. My experiences working with physicians, executives, vendors, and staff have allowed me to grow both personally and professionally. The “Build-Your-Own Experience” structure provides endless opportunities to learn and find your interests. I’m very grateful to have served as a Fellow, and know that I will carry the skills and knowledge that I gained throughout the rest of my career.”
