Education careers encompass everything from diabetes outreach for patients and their families to maintaining e-learning resources for our entire nursing staff, and more. Through the InovaCares program, nurses, physicians, and other specialists provide medical care to women and children living below the poverty line. We have dozens of community health programs designed to help our professionals make a difference right here at home.

Consultant for Corporate and Community Health Programs, Inova HealthSource
How does Inova support your career development?
I was accepted into Inova’s 21st Century Leadership Development Program, which, to me, is really the gold standard. It has completely changed my outlook on life and careers. And it’s right here with our own people. We have the leaders who build future leaders.
What’s your average day like at Inova?
I have to keep my finger on the pulse of the industry at all times. If it’s the busy season, I’m wearing flat shoes and my phone rings a lot. There are a ton of events going on, and my job is about logistics, organizing staff and presentation materials, and making sure everything is aligned so we have an engaged client. Other times, I’m focused on research to stay on top of new trends and developments.
What’s your team like?
My team is a group of nurses and health educators from several different fields. They bring their expertise and experience to the bigger picture. It’s a very dynamic team, and we receive callbacks every year booking the next year’s screenings and presentations. We have plenty of competition in the area, too, but clients know they aren’t going to get what we provide anywhere else.
Do you use Inova’s employee benefits?
I love, love, love the backup daycare system. Inova has a partnership with Bright Horizons, and you get 20 days a year. It helps with the work/life juggle knowing your kids are two miles away in a safe, accredited environment. That is by far the best benefit for me.
What would you say to someone interested in a career at Inova?
If you’re considering Inova, look at the possibilities. There are just so many tools that keep you growing. See what you could become, and know that we have the resources and know-how to get you there.
