Jennifer Holly - PHI Air Medical

"My intent is to increase my utility within the air medical world, and to increase my knowledge base, so that I may be the most effective leader and advocate I can within our industry. My goal is to move into the operations management side of the industry working with our Governmental Affairs and Industry Relations team for the advancement and advocacy of the air medical community," says Jennifer. "As a clinician and supervisor in California, I am familiar with complicated requirements/policy/ law that can hinder operations for an air medical provider, and I feel that by continuing to increase my knowledge base of the industry, and the legislative efforts at the state and federal levels, I can be useful in the advancement of our industry."
