After graduating from college in pre-med, I elected not to continue on to medical school, but joined the US Navy to serve in the Vietnam War. During that time, I discovered my interests lay more in leadership than in science. My next step was to earn a MBA degree in hospital management, which opened up a richly rewarding career for me and my family.
