Hello, my name is Curtis and I enjoy solving problems. More specifically, I enjoy solving problems through logical, strategic, and data-driven thinking. I studied finance before finding my passion for healthcare, which led to studying healthcare administration at the University of Minnesota. My passion for healthcare come when my daughter was born prematurely, only weighing 1 lb at birth. This passion was inspired by clinical professionals who are driven to help patients heal. I love knowing that my work is in turn helping clinicians and patients. I've recently found a love for teaching complex subjects and simplifying them.
