“The time I spent at JPS as an administrative intern and fellow is something I cherish. I had the chance to learn from many great leaders and work alongside some of the most caring individuals I have ever met. The level of access we had to meetings, projects, rotations and events helped us learn how the organization functions from different perspectives. The level of support that the executive team and our preceptors showed us was amazing.  I love being a part of the JPS family and I am thrilled to start my career in a place that I believe is putting the patients first in everything that we do.”

Education: Master of Science in Health Sciences (Health Services Administration Track) & Bachelor of Science in Health Services Administration, University of Central Florida

Year of Fellowship: 2017-2018


“As a former intern, and now the current administrative fellow, I have grown in such a considerable way both in my career and personal life. JPS teaches you true compassion in servanthood, and the significance of a genuine focus on patient-centered care. Not only are we focused on improving the patient experience, but we put just as much care into our employee experience. We recently became one of Modern Healthcare’s 2017 Best Places to Work! Experiencing the exceptional and supportive leadership of the executive team and truly feeling like part of the family, were reasons enough to come back to JPS. As a fellow, I have the honor of working alongside senior leaders in several departments, including Patient Experience, Enterprise Risk Management, Community Health, and Behavioral Health. The fellowship is definitely a worthwhile experience that should not be passed up.”

“My internship experience at JPS has been incredible! I learned so much in such a short amount of time. This internship allowed me to work on several projects throughout various departments in the hospital including Behavioral Health, Radiology, Patient Experience, Women’s Health, and Strategic Planning. In addition to projects, there were shadowing opportunities in every single department at the hospital. The Senior Leadership Team is so accessible and willing to help you in any way you need. They are warm, inviting, and extremely encouraging. The entire team at JPS wants you to succeed in your career, and they will provide you with the platform and the tools to do so. I felt like a valued part of this organization, and that I was able to help make a positive difference in the lives of our patients.”

“Working as an intern at JPS Health Network has made a huge impact on my career in just 10 weeks. I was able to work on several small projects as well as one large project in many areas in the hospital ranging from Behavioral Health, Patient Experience, Physician Engagement, Enterprise Risk Management and much more. This internship allowed me to narrow my focus in the healthcare field and find what I am most passionate about. I had regular contact with the executive leaders at JPS and found them to be supportive, encouraging and exceptionally helpful in my project work. Additionally, I worked with several outstanding directors and managers who offered me regular mentorship in accomplishing my projects. I felt valued as part of the JPS team and empowered to make an impact on patient’s lives in Tarrant County.”
