"The best thing about my job is being able to support and grow the talents and passion of the people of Satellite as we work together to make life better for those living with kidney disease. I’m drawn to this profession because I love finding ways to help people be more successful. Satisfied and fulfilled employees build strong organizations that make a lasting positive impact on society. When I’m not working, I head out to find adventure, locally and around the world, through practicing yoga, tasting exotic food, communing with nature, and enjoying art and culture."
