I currently reside in Saint Louis, MO, where I've lived my whole life.
I attended Saint Louis University for my undergraduate and master degree. Prior to entering college, I'd always known that I wanted to work within the healthcare field.
My original plan was to pass all of the pre-requisites with flying colors, shadow several physicians, and complete everything else required to gain my acceptance into a medical school.
This did not turn out as planned.
As my college career continued, I concluded that medical school wasn't for me. Meanwhile, my passion for healthcare was increasing. I decided to continue my studies with healthcare administration. Throughout the process I joined the American College of Healthcare Executives and obtained my Green Belt Lean Six Sigma Certification.
I knew I wanted to make a change somehow, but did not know where exactly.
This leads to my experience with medical licensing. My career began with a start up telemedicine company, where I was tasked with helping a medical doctor obtain licensure in all 50 states.
Since then, I've gained several years of experience. This experience has allowed me to help providers strategically approach multi-state licensure the best way possible.
Our Licensing Expert
I am a family practice physician working in the Telehealth world since 2015. In 2020, I created a curriculum to help physicians transition to Telehealth and have been consulting/coaching since. Our team licensing expert, Yazan Hamed, has been managing my own licensing and licensing for my clients for 1.5 years. He is experienced in working with a startup Telehealth company in which he licensed physicians in 50 states. The goal of Simplified Medical Licensing is to make multi-state licensing affordable and less overwhelming.
I am constantly learning and adapting through a process that is heavily rooted in “becoming more from within”. In the medical space, I began my work as a conservative sports medicine chiropractor back in 2009. I’ve more recently transitioned into functional medicine, and nutrition these days alongside asset development.
Having realized back in 1996, that I was at heart an entrepreneur; my path since then has been based on building businesses. When my business and life partner, Cherisa Sandrow, began her journey in telemedicine back in 2015, I quickly became a backbone in creating the systems, and an approach that allowed us to make this massive transition. We literally doubled our income and halved our time. In building a business in the consulting/coaching space, Cherisa and I quickly began to realize that one of the missing pieces in helping other physicians create the same kind of success we had was based on having multi-state licensure. That’s when we were introduced to our licensing expert Yazan Hamed.
Through the combination of Cherisa’s practical experience in the telemed space, Yazan’s practical experience in the licensing world, and my practical experience in the entrepreneurial world, we have come together with the sole intention of helping medical professionals like yourselves learn how to create and live their best lives on their own terms. Our goal is to help physicians focus on what they do well by taking some of the laborious work of licensing off their plates at an affordable price.
