Huntington Beach, CA, April 16, 2014 – Newly selected President Michelle Podlesni brings over 25 years of successful business experience to the NNBA. Michelle is a USN Veteran, RN and former corporate executive whose clinical background led to a career in healthcare data analysis and software development. Michelle brought her service orientation, enthusiasm and diverse expertise to the corporate environment in roles from product development to C-level executive management positions.

With a proven track record in the corporate setting of leading start-up companies to financial success, as well as their subsequent mergers and acquisitions, Michelle has directly managed the strategic, operational and technical areas of start-ups and multi-million dollar companies serving Fortune 500 clients. 

Michelle speaks nationally on Nurse Entrepreneurship and champions nurses teaching them how to use their nursing experience to re-invent their careers. She is the author of the bestseller Unconventional Nurse: Going from Burnout to Bliss! Michelle has created coaching and training programs that provide in depth training on business strategies, skills and case studies for the nurse that has the heart of an entrepreneur. Michelle encourages and inspires nurses to not settle for anything less than their best life.

“Now, more than ever, is the time for nurses to take control of their careers, look into the future and see how they can serve and grow a business, or multiple business if they desire. I’ve had the privilege of being a corporate executive, entrepreneur, franchise owner, independent business owner, and author; some of them at the same time. I want to help nurses discover new opportunities in business and learn pivotal business skills that will maximize their success,” stated Podlesni.

As President of the NNBA, Ms. Podlesni will focus on supporting membership by creating additional opportunities for members to learn, develop business skills, leadership and mentorship. With a proven track record as a people developer and visionary, Michelle will continue to expand the association through education, coaching programs, national networks and conferences. Passionately, Michelle expressed that, “I want nurses to view their nursing license as a license to do business and that they are the business. There are unlimited opportunities for nurses in business today and the more nurses that are successful in the business community will result in more nurse’s voices being heard.”
