Life Detours, Innovation, and Healthcare with Jessica Smith-Amara, Clinical Program Manager at Cohere Health
Many people take detours with their careers but ultimately keep working in healthcare.
This episode’s guest is Jessica Smith-Amara, a board-certified nurse executive with a particular journey in healthcare. She has taken a couple of detours in her career with teaching, practicing nursing in pediatrics and bedside patients, and clinical project management. Her love for innovation brews from troubleshooting and presenting solutions to any obstacle she encounters. She also shares her three principles for innovation: awareness of the starting point, recognition of the low-hanging fruit, and starting with what you know. Jessica also reflects on her overall design thinking process, networking, and the nursing workforce.
Tune in and enjoy this episode with a true innovator because the more hats you can wear, the more you can offer in your roles.
