Middletown, DE – As healthcare becomes more complex, the demands are higher, but patients are only getting sicker. Technology can temporarily mitigate these problems, but the real solution is stronger leadership.

Dr. Boston-Leary is the founder of The Reach Initiative, where she guides and supports healthcare professionals toward greater collaboration, patient care quality and job satisfaction. Dr. Boston-Leary provides outreach and support to people in the healthcare field, specifically nurses, to provide them with tools to advance and grow in their careers.

Teamwork, competency, and comradery define the nursing profession. Nurses can improve quality and outcomes, enhance an organization's culture, and build relationships with patients, colleagues, and the community.

And yet there is simply not enough diversity in nursing leadership. Dr. Boston-Leary is dedicated to advancing nurses up the career ladder while meaningfully addressing the lack of diversity in healthcare leadership.

“Diversity is merely an invitation to the party; inclusivity is an invitation to dance,” says Dr. Boston-Leary. “When you show up as a BIPOC woman in a leadership role, you must jump higher and go faster.”

Dr. Boston-Leary was fortunate enough to have mentors and supervisors who saw her potential for leadership. She helps clients think differently, and extend themselves beyond the patient’s journey.

“If what we've experienced in the last a year has not shown us how important leadership is, I don't know what other example I can give,” says Dr. Boston-Leary. “I'm proud of how nurses have stepped up to the plate.”
