Ananya is the CEO & Principal Consultant of Impact Clinical Strategy Consultants which helps Emergency medicine and Urgent Care Centers to improve operations and efficiency. She brings over 10 years of nursing experience to the table.
As a nurse practitioner working in the Emergency Department, she loved troubleshooting and solving operational inefficiencies such as throughput and onboarding of advanced practice providers, as a clinician. This is where her desire to serve healthcare organizations was actualized and she continues to work towards moving the needle as a woman in healthcare.
Cherese is a former emergency department travel nurse with over 20 years of emergency department experience, Cherese had the opportunity of working in the emergency department across the United States.
