Doug has decades of experience transforming Fortune 500 legacy companies into modern Internet-based, high-functioning enterprises. He is an expert in the use of technology in today's business enterprises, change management, and business process re-engineering.
Doug graduated from Central Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, specializing in marketing and management. He immediately went to systems engineering school in Dallas, Texas where he became a software systems engineer.
After decades of developing complex customized enterprise software applications, he led a team of technicians who designed a leading-edge software application to manage logistics within the healthcare industry. This product is still used today in many world-renowned institutions.
Next, Doug spent six years with KPMG Consulting where he managed large-scale technology projects for Fortune 500 clients. Some of his major accomplishments during this period include establishing a program management office at one of the country's largest health insurance companies. He also played a key role implementing a worldwide technology command information center at one of the largest brokerage houses.
When KPMG Consulting went public, Doug was assigned the responsibility of managing the KPMG/Cisco alliance in the 15 states that consisted of Cisco's Midwest Region. During this period, he was tasked with working with the sales force to leverage six internet-based enterprise software solutions co-branded by KPMG and Cisco.
Doug's next challenge began when he was hired to turn around a small financial services firm in Northern California. Although new to the financial services industry, this was still a technology firm loaded with talent. During his first 90 days, the newly reorganized management group had increased profitability by 35% because of streamlining operational processes and leveraging assets across the various entities. The new highly-focused operating committee took only three years to meet the goals established in the Board's five-year strategic plan. This led to a very successful exit strategy in two separate transactions with some of the country's largest title companies.
Doug has spent the last 14 months building the team that has designed, developed, and is now ready to launch an entrepreneurial endeavor designed to improve patient outcomes in today's complex healthcare environment. It is also aimed at increasing the productivity, efficiency, and utilization of the highly-skilled, critical-care nursing assets that are at the center of successful patient outcomes.

Since graduation, Liz has made it her specialty to be a float nurse and focus on adult medical surgical ICUs and specialty ICUs. She has spent the last four years perfecting the art of "floating" between units while operating as a valued team member of each unit and providing consistent quality care to patients in an ICU setting.

"I make the choice daily, to put my patients ahead of my own physical discomfort, so I can make a difference in their lives however minor it may be. I am sure I get more out of caring for my patients than they do from me caring for them."
