WHAT ARE SOME WAYS YOU GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY?

I give back to the community in a multipronged approach of time and financial resources. I have previously been on the board of nonprofits and currently serve on the Gulf States Health Policy Center (focusing on alleviating Social Determinants of Health), I volunteer my time for several organizations that assist with food instability, homelessness, lack of children’s health services, mental health and I contribute financially to charities in the Tampa Bay community, as well as nationwide organizations. This year, I also started to have my team identify the charity they would like me to support, in their name, for select holidays, anniversaries and birthdays.

In 2022, I founded the Bravado Health Cares initiative that gives one day a quarter, to each team member, to volunteer their time in their community. Each quarter, the philanthropic and culture committee selects a different charity focus that our time resources go to and bi-annually, for our financial resources.

WHAT HAS BEEN THE GREATEST LESSON IN YOUR PROFESSIONAL JOURNEY?

While daunting, it is to continually obsolete myself in whatever space I am in at that time. Obsoleting pushes me to evolve, and elevate, beyond my comfort zone which, in turn, leads to larger risk-taking. It happens for me and allows me to have more control in being part of the process, because if not the competition/market/industry will do it to me.

This lesson is something that I carry over into my business practices and mentoring. As a business, you should be constantly looking at how the product(s) can evolve into the next level of success. Are you answering the right question/problem? Is this the right offering for your clients, enough of one? The health tech industry, like most, is evolving and shifting priorities on a minute-by-minute basis. Users are slow to adopt but what is in vogue is fast to change.

I have to obsolete myself not only for me but for my team, pushing me to be a more robust and well-rounded leader. It allows me to support and help elevate my team members in the company and their overall career.
