    Meg Novacek- Growing a Successful Career Part 1

     I recently sat down and spoke with Meg Novacek, a former senior leader for FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, now known as Stellantis), about growing a successful career.  Our conversation was so good that I split into into three episodes.  
    In this episode she shares about her education and fast paced career progression.  You will hear her refer to milestones in her career as “drinking from a fire hose”.  Despite the intensity and unchartered territories, she embraced new roles and responsibilities with an open state of mind and confidence.

    McKenna Merten- A Physician Assistant

    McKenna Merten- A Physician Assistant

    In this episode I speak with McKenna  Merten, a practicing PA, a new mom, and the wife of Luke Merten who was a guest on my most recent podcast release. 
    As a graduate of University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, McKenna  now works in a primary care clinic.  She shares such helpful insight into her current role and gives a glimpse into her previous role working in a spinal surgery clinic.
    The PA field is a very popular desire for students interested in pursuing a career in healthcare.  For those interested in this field, I think it would be really helpful to hear her input on general practice versus a pursuing a specialty.

    Luke Merten- Board Certified Critical Care Pharmacist

    Luke Merten- Board Certified Critical Care Pharmacist

     In today’s episode I speak with Luke Merten, a graduate of University of Houston College of Pharmacy.  After completing his critical care residency at Baylor St. Lukes, he now practices as a board certified critical care  pharmacist.  I didn’t realize there was this type of specialty and learned that there are many more specialty paths for pharmacists.  It was a very enlightening conversation and I especially appreciated how he keeps up with the latest trends in pharmaceuticals.

Very insightful

Loved all of the angles you covered! As a teacher, I sit in on a lot of interviews at my school. I agree that being able to share their story, know their strengths (being a good listening and being able to take time to process before giving input is such a great example), and asking questions at the end (that is always our last question to the interviewer as well). Will recommend this podcast to anyone getting ready to interview.

I genuinely learned something new here!

A quick 20 minutes to get answers to a lot of questions I’ve never known the answer to when it comes to the interview process. Whether you’re brand new to a career or building one, this podcast has already proven to be helpful in a short amount of time. Absolutely love it!
