Cynthia received her MBA from The Stetson School of Business of Mercer University, and her BSN from the College of Nursing at Mercer University. Her career began at Georgia Baptist hospital working as a staff critical care nurse both in adult and pediatrics and advanced into leadership roles. It soon became evident to her that there was much more involved in the life cycle for patients, providers and the full continuum from illness to wellness. She was provided the opportunity to utilize that knowledge and was able to provide process improvement, revenue cycle enhancements, and business development solutions through supervision of the internal audit functions representing the Southeastern U.S. in 10+ hospitals. Cynthia then moved into external audit functions representing the covered lives of 2 of the top U.S. auto corporations (union and non-union), as well as representing international employees of the healthcare division of a multi-million dollar corporation.
