“After deciding I wasn’t going to medical school, I realized that what initially led me on the path of being a doctor was still inside me: I still had the deep desire to spend my career helping to improve patients’ lives. It is with this sense of purpose that I joined Nuvera, a firm that works every day to help patients navigate and manage an increasingly complex health care system. Nuvera’s values align not just with my passion, but also with my personality. In getting to know the people at Nuvera, I saw the humor and humility that bring laughter and learning to complement a strong sense of mission.”
