    More than anything Jana was a friend and an inspiration to everyone she touched.  Jana had a smile and laugh that were absolutely contagious.  She gracefully juggled being a healthcare executive and a mom-of-the-year for her children.  Jana had an attitude that you can conquer anything you set your heart and mind to.  You saw it in her successful career, you saw it in her beautiful children and you saw it in her courageous battle.  To the final moment Jana never gave up.  So often during the tough times of her battle Jana was the one giving the encouragement to those who loved her.  Jana taught so many to live each day to the fullest, to be grateful for every moment, day and memory that you are blessed with, to always push on, and to make sure that those you care about always know your love.

    This award is about the beautiful, loving, endearing spirit of Jana.  It is a way for her precious spirit to be kept alive and the incredible qualities she possessed to be aspired to and recognized.  The qualities that we will look for in those that receive this award will be a combination of a mentor, role model, advisor, family person, a person not afraid to struggle, whose combination of endearing qualities draw others in.

    PWH is seeking a candidate with qualities that define their success professionally and personally, which were an inherent part of Jana Quinn and her experiences. To nominate someone for this award visit the Professional Women in Healthcare website www.mypwh.org or contact Jackie Jones (jjones@ndc-inc.com). Nomination deadline is August 31, 3013.

    Please briefly describe your work experience.
    I began my career in healthcare manufacturing and distribution with Bovie Medical Corp. in 2006 as Inside Sales Support/Admin Assistant to Rob Saron & Janis Dezso. I was fresh out of college holding a Bachelor in Fine Arts from the University of South Florida. Over the years, I have learned how to use excel, experienced the vast world of medical distribution and become an increasingly vital member of the Bovie sales & marketing team. In 2011, I was promoted to Associate Marketing Manager which is the position I hold today.

    How long have you been in the healthcare industry?
    Seven years.

    How long have you been evolved with PWH?
    I joined PWH in 2007.

    What do you think the benefits of PWH are? How have you benefited from being involved?
    PWH has given me the tools, support and confidence to take risks, learn new skills and build myself a pretty incredible network.

    If you had to give someone new in the industry two pieces of advice, what would it be? (This could be related to your personal experiences, advice on personal life or professional)
    1.       Find an organization such as PWH to help you build your network and navigate through our industry.
    2.       Embrace the unknown and take the leap. Failure is okay as long as we learn from it and adjust.
