Danielle Marsrow is a graduate student in the Master of Science in Health Administration & Leadership (MSHAL) program. She received a Bachelor’s in Health Science with a minor in Gerontology from SVSU in December 2012. Danielle decided after attending an SVSU career fair that the MSHAL program was a good fit for her goal of working in administration in healthcare. “I want to have a hand in shaping tomorrow's healthcare system, and I want to start in my local community”, she explains. “Going to SVSU allows me to do that.”
Danielle is currently employed as a Home Care Liason through Covenant Visiting Nurses Association. Upon completion of the MSHAL, she anticipates obtaining her Nursing Home Administrator’s License with a goal of finding a position with a skilled care facility so that she can “make real differences in the lives of the residents of the facility.”
Through her studies in the MSHAL program, she has “met some wonderful people who have been great friends and have helped me create a network of contacts that will be of great benefit to me in my future endeavors in healthcare administration.” One of her favorite professors has been Marilyn Skrocki as “she has been a great resource and has offered much guidance and support.” Danielle describes Marilyn as being “very passionate about her work and her students and wants to assist in anyway that she can to help them excel in the MSHAL program." She is grateful to Marilyn for helping her expand her horizon and teaching her that “with hard work and dedication anything is possible.”
Danielle is a student member of the Healthcare Finance Management Association (HFMA) and is being highlighted in an upcoming issue of the HFMA Great Lakes Gazette. This spring she will be going to New Zealand to study the private and public healthcare system through a Study Abroad course at SVSU. She anticipates graduating in Summer 2014.
