MentorCore - Kelly Willenberg

This week we welcome Kelly Willenberg ( ) to the show. Kelly is a clinical oncology nurse, clinical trials nurse, and billing compliance expert. Kelly is the founder of Kelly Willenberg and Associates

In this episode we chat with Kelly about how her role as a clinician helped her be a better compliance professional, along with a host of other topics:

  • What are the benefits and risks of entering a role without experience?
  • How does working in clinical trials and as a nurse affect one’s perspective on compliance?
  • What is the right balance between gaining experience in preparation for a role vs jumping in and doing it in the role itself?
  • How can consideration for what led to something help better understand reasons for compliance?
  • How does life experience and mentoring add to the in-job experience in preparing you for a role?
  • How to maintain wellness in a state of being “always on” and the value of stepping away from the screen?
  • What’s exciting and what’s on tap from the next generation of compliance professionals as they continue to grow in the field?
  • Why is it important to deeply connect with people beyond the superficial layer?

Stay tuned to find out how being a Disc Jockey helped Kelly’s compliance career, along with the best advice she ever received from a mentor.
