Laura graduated in 2018 with a Major in Healthcare Systems Administration and a Minor
in Lean Healthcare! She is also on the OSM advisory board, staying engaged with past/current/and
future FSU students! She currently works as a Patient Education and Health Literacy
Designer for Henry Ford Health Systems! Regarding her experience at Ferris she writes,
"When I first graduated and I interviewed for jobs I was asked a lot about my lean
experience. In healthcare, this is a major topic and one that is of constant discussion.
We want to do what is best for our patients in the most efficient way while still
keeping safety our number one priority. In my current role we focus on streamlining
patient education material throughout the entire system. While this can sometimes
feel daunting it is also very rewarding knowing our team is providing the most current
material to our patients no matter what Henry Ford location they are at." What a rewarding
position, Laura! As for advice to current/future students, she writes, "Always keep
searching, learning and exploring. There is always something new to learn whether
it’s a process for work or something you enjoy outside of work. You may be working
towards your degree and end up using it in a way you never thought of or in a job
you had no idea even existed."
Such great advice, Laura! Thank you for being involved in our advisory board and for sharing a glimpse into your Ferris experience and how it led you to your current position! We hope your future endeavors include staying connected with all of our Alumni via our OSM page!
