"I knew in my sophomore year of high school that healthcare was the field that I wanted to be employed in. I didn't know which area of healthcare I would study, but I knew that I wanted to be involved with creating greater opportunities for improved patient outcomes. I graduated from Ohio Northern University in May 2011 where I obtained my BSBA in Pharmaceutical Business Management. The program taught me both business acumen as well as the healthcare industry. During my final year at ONU, I was introduced to the healthcare information technology industry by Stoltenberg Consulting's CEO, Sheri Stoltenberg. After having some in-depth conversations with Sheri and some of SCI's consultants, I knew that this was the field that I wanted to pursue. The passion of everyone I spoke with was unmistakable."
"SCI took a chance on me, a recent college graduate, something they had never done before and sent me to Epic training in Verona, Wisconsin where I learned how to build electronic health records (EHRs). I have attained three Epic certifications and have learned more than I thought was possible. I have been with my first client, University of Rochester Medical Center, located in Rochester, New York, for the past 17 months and have learned not only about Epic, but also about the healthcare industry, processes and workflows. One of the greatest things I've learned is that within the HIT industry and working with EHRs, in order to produce the most efficient EHRs, teamwork is vital."
"SCI's Consultant Development Program has provided me with one of the greatest opportunities that a college graduate could ever ask for. I am just one year out of college, and I work behind the scenes with my team building, implementing, and improving EHRs, every day. I have experienced going through one of Epic's largest Big Bang Ambulatory go lives and feel that I have been a strong asset to the URMC team. Not many college graduates are offered an opportunity such as this. It was my dream to be involved with creating greater opportunities for increased patient outcomes, and I have been given the opportunity to do just that. Electronic health records are the future of healthcare in this country, and I am grateful to be a part of it."
