I'm an African American who is trying to change the state of healthcare in the US for my community. Ever since High school I always wanted to help people in need. I come from a small school in the inner city of Chicago (Chicago State University). I was a bio major and took a small lab position right out of college. At that point I knew I didn't want to be a researcher but do something more to impact people. I entered the health and fitness industry in 1998 and have been in the industry ever since. In the last few years I wanted to do something more with my degree so I decided to pursue a Physician Assistant degree. But to enter a PA school I needed more experience so I received a EMT certification and a CNA license. After volunteering in both I discovered how much medical help is needed among the homeless, low income, elderly and disabled individuals. So I decided to move to California to work for a home healthcare company to get more experience. That's where I met the patient who would inspire me to create this company and change my path.
