About Mark

I have worked as a dialysis technician for 24 years. This experience has taught me the value of building trust and maintaining a good caregiver/patient relationship with empathy and communication skills. I'm much more of a "people person" now, smart, funny, and personable. I'm well-read and something of a pop culture fan, and, can relate to everything from Bogart movies to current Anime shows. Most of all, I'm a good listener! I have also had private dialysis clients. Both were Board members of major companies. I learned how to transfer my skills from a clinical environment to the home.
