    Hello Mr. Health Clinic Founder!
    Krista Nannery from mbaMission here.
    I love that you have started your own health clinic and it seems to have a wide footprint — 150 employees is impressive!!

I recently worked with a client who was living and working in Asia and wanted to return post-MBA. I really think that on-the-ground experience added credibility to the viability of employment post-MBA. I love that you’ve had both large US and non-profit in country experience. Are there opportunities …
