I had a couple of offers and wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. I knew I wanted to be somewhere that was dedicated to healthcare. I met a few people from Chartis and it struck me how interested they were in learning what I was passionate about outside of consulting. They were also focused on solving the higher-level challenges in healthcare that really interest me.
When I decided to join Chartis, I was immediately given opportunities to step up. In some other firms, as a junior member of the team, you wouldn’t be as visible with clients. At Chartis, I’ve been able to interview CFOs and present to boards at multibillion-dollar institutions. I was challenged and supported right from the beginning.
Consulting allows you to see the view from many different types of clients. You take insights from each experience. For example, one of my clients was a children’s hospital where we were making recommendations around a program for high-risk pregnancies. Another was a school of dentistry where we were focused on providing data-driven insights for their budgeting process — very different clients with very different challenges. I’ve grown so much faster by working on multiple teams and clients. I also love to travel and experience new things. I always enjoy the team dinners and opportunities to bond and debrief on our various client assignments.
I moved to the US from Jamaica when I was 8 years old. When I was growing up, I wanted to be an anesthesiologist and I majored in pre-med. I saw and experienced the way people interacted with the health system in Jamaica. I also saw this during time I spent in Sri Lanka and even while living in Atlanta. Many of the issues were the same, particularly as it pertained to minorities. As I grew older, I became more interested in the macro issues and wanted to be a part of changing the system.
