Her book of business includes supporting teams with improvement efforts in both the inpatient and ambulatory settings, coaching improvement projects, teaching improvement systems and tactics, and serving as a thought partner to healthcare leaders.

    With 20+ years of experience in coaching executives, athletes, emerging individuals, teams, and teaching improvement, Jakaria has found herself to be energized by the possibility of growth (be it people, teams, systems, or processes). Jakaria is looking forward to bringing her diversity of thought, passion for people, and drive for executing effectively to her board appointment with Empowered Aging.
