Why I Joined Carevive

Everyone has been impacted by cancer in their life directly or indirectly and Carevive is focused on improving the outcomes and experience for everyone involved, which aligns with my passion. As a type 1 diabetic, I have firsthand experience with regularly navigating healthcare and aware of the opportunities for improvement. Carevive is an innovator for one of the largest patient populations that often have the most difficult time navigating healthcare. It feels rewarding to simplify something that is complex and know you are impacting lives. Joining Carevive also supports a career objective of building relationships with health organizations aiming to improve efficiencies through technology, ultimately leading to improved patient and provider experiences.
