JJJoe has been coaching me for about 6 months. During this time, he has proven to be an amazing resource with a wealth of healthcare knowledge. He is a great strategist and has helped me to better assess and clearly define my career goals. Joe's advice has been very helpful for my career development. He has challenged me to push myself beyond my comfort zone and I am more confident because of him. I highly recommend Joe for mentoring, coaching, self-assessment, career development, and resolving general strategic and operational healthcare issues.
