As a young girl growing up in a small town in southern Illinois, I could have never imagined owning a Healthcare Technology consulting firm. I probably couldn’t have articulated what that even meant. The product of a bi-racial family, I grew up in a place where people didn’t look like me, and women certainly weren’t expected to aspire to the C-suite. Through a tremendous amount of hard work and determination, WalkerHealthcareIT came to fruition.
Over the past 15 years, WalkerHealthcareIT has evolved as one of the preeminent minority-owned and woman-owned Healthcare Technology consulting firms in the country. I am immensely proud and honored to be sitting at the helm of this ever-evolving organization of talented individuals.
As a minority-owned organization, WalkerHealthcareIT is living proof of the opportunities that are possible for those from diverse backgrounds. I remain committed to increasing those same opportunities for diverse candidates, not just at the leadership level but across our entire population of employees and consultants.
Diversity of thought is at the center of what fuels our organization. Our ability to service our clients at the highest level comes from the thoughts, opinions, backgrounds, cultures, and experiences of our employees. WalkerHealthcareIT’s ability to harness these valuable insights and provide real-world solutions to our client base is what sets us apart.
Coupled with our commitment to diversity and inclusion and unwavering loyalty to our clients, I have worked to create an inclusive culture that promotes the talents of our employees. This includes fostering an environment where people can grow professionally, while having the latitude to balance their personal lives simultaneously. As a mother of four children, I am keenly aware of the pressures that have been placed on families. We promote a healthy work-life balance and encourage a culture where everyone is valued and celebrated for their achievements.
Simply put, WalkerHealthcareIT is, at its core, an organization built by and for a diverse network of talented individuals to service the Healthcare Technology sector at the highest level. As its CEO, I value the diversity and individualism that each member of our team possesses. This is what makes our organization a partner of choice to the healthcare institutions we serve. It is an honor to do so and as such, I will continue to lead the way for our team and to serve yours.
