What sparked your interest in your career field?
Helping others and giving back to the community I live in has always been first and foremost on my mind. I wanted to open a community-based urgent care and wellness practice that would be focused on providing quality medical health care services seven days a week. Before opening our community-based AllCare of Maryland Urgent Care Centers, I was vice president of product marketing and management for CheckFree Corp. out of Atlanta, Ga., and we handled the back-end systems for the top 10 U.S. banks' electronic bill pay services for online bill pay. Before that I was a senior executive with AT&T, working in South and Central America based out of Sao Paolo, Brazil, and Miami, Fla. I helped find new opportunities for growth in Latin America for AT&T and was fluent at that time in Portuguese and Spanish, too.
