I started Moore & Associates with a desire to make a difference in the lives of others. I believe we do that, in part, by helping client organizations to identify, assess and hire the best possible talent for each and every position on their management team. People in healthcare touch the lives of countless individuals at a moment when they, or a loved one, are in a difficult situation. Knowing that what we do helps another human being in a time of need is, frankly, a blessing.
This was an unlikely career for me. You see, when I was 16 years old, my mother was diagnosed with metastases breast cancer and given 6 months to live. This news was quite a shock to me and my three sisters. Mom survived for three years, spending much of that time in and out of hospitals. When she finally passed away, I swore I would never go back into another hospital. It is strange, sometimes, how life works out.
Now, it is a different story. Hospitals and Healthcare Systems are where I make my living. During the course of all of these years I have been in literally hundreds of Hospitals all across this great country. I have met people who bring a sense of compassion and caring to what they do for others and it never ceases to inspire me. I have been doing this for almost two decades and even so, every morning when I wake up, I cannot wait to see what the day will bring.
My other great passions in life are my wife, Cynthia, and our three children, all grown and married with families of their own. This brings me to my grandchildren, a total of 11 now, to whom I am known as ‘Papa’. That number, as my wife likes to put it, was achieved through nature, merger and acquisition (it’s a long story). And last, but not least, yacht racing. My sanctuary, quite frankly, is on the deck of a racing sailboat. I have been doing that for over 30 years. I started out at first as crew, a bowman, and eventually competed in the 2005 Trans Pacific Yacht Race, finishing third in our class. Today I Skipper my own boat, a 35 footer by the name of ‘Kestrel’. I love my time on the water out where a person can witness the presence of something greater than themselves.
