Welcome. I am thrilled you are here.
Even though ARDX, the healthcare management consulting firm I created, just celebrated its ninth year, I feel as if I have been working toward business success my entire life. My goal now includes you – to empower a new generation of entrepreneurs.
Nine years ago, in 2006, my vision for ARDX had three pillars.
- First, to provide thought leadership with excellence to impact the Nation’s health care policy and processes for the vulnerable populations. At that time, Medicare was the niche market.
Because of the excellence demonstrated with those initiatives, we were positioned to be invited to the table to support the most significant legislation since the Social Security Act – the Affordable Care Act.
- Second, to create a high-performing learning organization. With my background in training and organizational development, it is always a desire to see others learn and continue to learn through each other. This is accomplished through structured and experiential learning. My vision was to create an environment where we face each new challenge as an opportunity to learn more about ourselves and the world around us. In my opinion, a day where there is no learning, is a day that I haven’t given my all.
- Finally, to surround myself with a collection of diverse individuals who are inspired to strive toward excellence by integrating the innovative ideas of others based on a solid foundation of integrity. Prior to forming ARDX, I was fortunate to be in leadership positions in small, mid-sized, and large companies. In each of those, I learned firsthand that there are many roads to success. As the founder of ARDX, it was and continues to be my desire to build an organization that is a beacon of light.
As I reflect on my journal of daily lessons, I am reminded of more than 2,000 opportunities for learning that I have been afforded through my experience at ARDX. This has allowed me to face each day with anticipation instead of fear, doubt, or disappointment, as I am eager to increase my journal of lessons.
And this is where you come in. I hope to share the lessons in my journal with you, to help you envision a path of success, lead the way so others will follow, and absorb the lessons around you so you will grow wherever you are planted and reach the highest heights!
This is just the beginning.
