    What prompted you to pursue your field?

    Health care administration requires individuals who can change with the changing landscape of healthcare. They must be able to adjust to new technologies, changing organizational structures, and new challenges from the external environment.

    What does your department's focus mean to you?

    The HCA program provided an opportunity to apply my experience from working in training and development in a medical system to the classroom.

    Why is this area of study important at this point in time?

    At Parkinson there is an opportunity to develop new courses which meet the needs of a continually changing demographic and to continue to improve quality, access, and cost.
