Who We Are
All of the partners and faculty involved with Edge-U-Cate, LLC are or have been independent healthcare consultants and previously held positions in hospitals, ambulatory care, credentialing verification organizations, and/or health plans. In addition to their coming together for the common goal of "education" and the creation of "Edge-U-Cate" to meet that common goal, most also continue to operate a separate consulting business to further assist clients and individuals with operational needs and assessments (see "Links and Resources" for additional information). It is from these hands-on consulting experiences, combined with healthcare employment history that they have been able to keep a pulse on the current educational needs of the profession.

In loving memory of one of our co-founders and general manager for EUC.
Lynn had a passion for education, evidenced by her enthusiasm and dedication to put EUC on the map as a premier educational provider to those primarily in medical staff services and credentialing. She co-founded the Credentialing School and taught most of its classes She also was an active participant in the Speakers' Bureau, presented webinars, and briefly managed the certification focused study programs.
