In this episode, you will meet the CEO of CVH Consulting, Christie VanHorne. If her name sounds familiar to you, then you may remember her from the very first Public Health Consulting and Entrepreneurship Expo that I held, where she was one of my cohosts.
She joins me on this episode to talk about her public health journey, from employee to consultant. She talks about who she serves in her business, her ideal client, the types of services she provides, and what she loves about her role as a consultant.
She also has a few tips for job seekers, that are very similar to what you often hear from me.
I’m confident that you will enjoy this episode. So sit back, relax, and enjoy my interview with Christie.
CVH Consulting provides services to nonprofit and public health organizations.
Services fall into three categories.
Training and Instructional Design Services: She can help you create learning solutions from start to finish. She can identify the skill or knowledge gaps, determine the level of instructional needed, develop training interventions, and begin the evaluation strategy. Christie takes pride in providing hands-on, interactive interventions that include scenarios, practice, and performance-based experiences. In addition to developing materials for the learner and facilitator, she is also available to provide program implementation, facilitator training, train-the-trainers.
Facilitation: Christie provides facilitation services to nonprofit and public health organizations. For example, she recently facilitated focus groups for a Pride Center’s staff, board, and participants as they reevaluate their mission and services offered. She facilitated a meeting for the local United Way, and four nonprofits focused on food security in the Hudson Valley. Christie helped a sociology department in the process of updating their curriculum including content and a timeline to put the changes in place.
Health Education: Christie recently wrote a curriculum to address gender bias in healthcare. Social inequities have a long history of causing health disparities in marginalized groups. This curriculum addresses the bias women experience through education, skills-based practice, and planning. Participants will leave this training with the knowledge and ability to be better self-advocates in a medical system that is structured to leave women behind.
Christie referenced podcast episode #24 and recommended it for the discussion on volunteering. Here is the link to that episode.
