Kevin has over sixteen years of combined entrepreneurial and healthcare experience with a passion to innovate in every aspect of business and his nursing practice. In fact, Kevin’s drive to learn from, and surround himself with the best motivated a move from Colorado to solely pursue a career opportunity at Johns Hopkins Hospital In Baltimore, MD in the Cardiovascular Surgical Intensive Care Unit (CSICU) where the Cardiology department is ranked #3 in the nation by US News and World Report (2011-12).
Never one to settle also meant a strong desire to combine his nursing experience and passion to excel with his enthusiasm for advocacy and entrepreneurship. These seemingly disparate interests are what led him to move back to Colorado and start a medical consulting company in 2007. Over the last five years Spire Health Partners has evolved into an organization that provides advocacy services to a broad population of adults and children. The company advises on various healthcare topics and also provides wellness mentorship, childcare health, and corporate wellness.
Kevin is devoted to helping underserved people and communities get the medical care and attention they deserve and need. To that end, he is involved in a variety of projects from small and grassroots to larger scale initiatives all with the focus of ensuring the health and safety of the clients being served.
He remains focused on medical advocacy and mentorship, however in recent years he has become a branding, marketing, and technology strategist and founded Innovative Nurse. This organization provides support to other healthcare providers in achieving their goals as clinicians, entrepreneurs and authorities in their industry. He works with some of the top healthcare leaders in the country forging new avenues for success with the new healthcare reform.
As a business consultant, he co-founded Unbound Media Group, LLC, which is an organization that helps companies cultivate innovation, optimizes brand architecture, and revitalizes product and service delivery across multiple categories. Kevin capitalizes on his assessment skills to “triage” and resuscitate brands. He consults for both healthcare and non-healthcare related companies helping them achieve their goals to transcend and better meet the needs of their clients.
He is the co-host of RN.FM Radio where you can listen in on some of his strategies about advocacy, leadership, business, and technology. Kevin is continuously working on creating strategic partnerships that help various businesses effectively collaborate while remaining relevant and sustainable as a company.Innovative Nurse Founder/Author Spire Health Partners, Inc.

The What and Why of Innovative Nurse:
I didn’t have the opportunity to have a mentor while I was getting my business off the ground, but I’m hoping to provide that support to all of you out there that are looking to do the same. Do you think getting business advice from a nurse is unusual? Not in the least. Nurses have an amazing ability to assess a situation, and so, I bring the expertise of being able to triage your business. I continue to have sustainable businesses and ongoing strategic partnerships, and I can help you do the same.
Since the inception of Innovative Nurse, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting many other entrepreneurs out there, and have had the incredible opportunity to collaborate with some pretty amazing professionals. When I first started my company I was able to just figure things out, but let me be honest and tell you that the majority of it was not easy. It involved a significant investment of both time and money. Over the years I’ve learned to streamline many processes that it takes to launch and run a successful business.
This isn’t just your typical nursing site. We’re going to be discussing entrepreneurship, branding, marketing, innovative practices, technology, and the occasional personal story. Yes, we’ll of course be including nursing topics and clinical practice, but some of this will be about nursing outside of the box.
The community is growing, and part of this growth is due to other content creators that contribute to Innovative Nurse. They are authors, bloggers, vloggers, consultants, entrepreneurs, leaders, and technology enthusiasts.
