Director of Operations, ISIS Services, LLC
"I completed the DHSc program in August 2005 and have never regretted it since. In fact, the DHSc has opened so many doors in industry, education and consulting that I find myself choosing between opportunities.
In the same month that I finished, I began a full time Assistant Professor position in the School of Nursing at Dominican University. Having the DHSc qualified me to advance to teaching in the MSN program and it fulfilled a tenure requirement of achieving the doctorate. After three years of teaching full time, I have switched to adjunct in order to free up time to pursue other opportunities. I also teach as an Adjunct Professor in the PA/MPH program at Touro University, and have done curriculum development projects for the Doctor of Health Sciences program at Argosy University online. This fall I will be teaching online for California State East Bay's new Health Sciences program online. The program began a few years ago and is expanding rapidly due to the demand for health science programs as students see health as a viable career and this degree as an alternative to a clinical role in the industry.
My full time job is as the Director of Operations at ISIS Services, LLC headquarters facility in Berkeley CA. We have a satellite surgical research facility in San Carlos as well. The DHSc has provided me with a level of credibility in the research industry that 15 previous years as an RN in surgical services (with an MBA) did not."
