Margaret "Maggie" Falgout graduated from the Our Lady of the Lake School of Nursing in 1987. Maggie serves now as the Regional Director for the healthcare technology company, Teletracking, which provides products to hospitals intended to improve patient flow. This is what she says about her dreams during school:
“In school I really just wanted to be a great nurse. A chance patient assignment landed me in sales, an opportunity that has led to travel throughout the US and especially the South. I have helped some incredible people with hospital operational and capital issues that I understood instinctively because of my excellent education and my nursing background.”
Jason Kutinac a Health Service Administration graduate from 2006 is now living in League City, Texas. This is what he says about his dreams and how Our Lady of the Lake College helped him to achieve them:
“During school I dreamed of gaining enough knowledge to advance my career so I could serve patients and clinicians. That dream has taken me to an MBA and a leadership position for a large private healthcare provider in Texas. I find myself constantly inspired by the mission and vision of the Franciscan Sisters.”
