I love my job. I don’t hear too many people saying that about their chosen (or not-so-chosen) positions, but it’s true for me. I love my job! As the Director of Nutrition Infusion Services at Focus Rx, I get to work with my TPN patients and their healthcare providers to help them reach their nutritional best. I love my patients, and the long-term nature of their care allows me to really connect with them. I celebrate with them when they improve their state of health, and I worry about them when chronic conditions take a toll on them. It’s personal, and that makes me want to give them my best, always.

One of the best parts of my job is the Nutrition Support Team I get to work with at FocusRX. I have the privilege of working with seasoned, knowledgeable professionals—pharmacists, nurses, insurance experts, and leadership team members–from throughout the Home Infusion Pharmacy Industry who all came together with a common goal: to shake off the bureaucracy that plagues the health care system today, and get back to doing patient care the right way. Putting the Patient Back In Patient Care is not just a slogan to us. To us, it’s why we studied for years to enter to our professions, and it’s why we still work so hard to keep abreast of the latest advances in home TPN management, doing research and participating in professional, educational seminars, so that we can find ways to offer the best that science has to give to our patients. {Just look at our testimonial page to see what I mean.}

I love being part of a team that is building something the right way, where I can come across an idea that may improve patient care, and I get to have a meeting with the key decision makers on the leadership team within hours to discuss the possibility. And I get to manage those projects, such as our Prescriber Portal, that offers ease of use to our prescribing doctors and practitioners, just because they’ve asked for it. How many of the global healthcare organizations are that responsive? I am proud to be a part of the team responsible for being named one of The INC. 5000 fastest growing private companies, 2 years in a row. I welcome being part of a team where we come together to share our ideas and our knowledge with one another for the good of our patients, rather than play corporate ladder-climbing on each other’s backs. It’s a refreshing change, and in my opinion, the direction that healthcare needs to be heading.

Perhaps one of my favorite projects is the MyNutritionFocus program and its website www.MyNutritionFocus.com. Through this tool, we offer education and resources to patients, family members/caregivers, and health care professionals. It will be updated with more useful information periodically, so please check back in for the latest improvements!

So yes, for all these reasons, I love my job. As corny as that may sound, I truly do…because, to me, it’s personal, and that makes me want to give them my best, always.
