As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
While practicing as dental hygienist, Ms. Ackerman was inspired to become a business consultant in the healthcare arena after being part of a team that was poorly treated and mis-managed by a healthcare consultant. Ms. Ackerman did not believe the consultant was doing the right things for the team and the practice was not improving financially or culturally. Ms. Ackerman conducted research on the business management of healthcare practices and realized that she could take better care of the doctors and team, utilizing fundamental principles in business management that could be effectively implemented to result in significant financial growth. Before fully engaging in consulting services, Ms. Ackerman felt she would be more prepared and effective if she expanded her education. Therefore, she returned to her alma mater, the University of Washington, earning a Master of Business Administration and a Master of Science in Accounting.
While pursuing her academic degrees, Ms. Ackerman continued to practice clinical dental hygiene as well as participate in teaching and administration programs within the field of dentistry and medicine, becoming the director of operations of the first for-profit Expanded Functions Dental Assisting Program in the State of Washington. She then joined a national dental consulting company to gain further experience in business management and administration. Eventually, Ms. Ackerman launched her own consulting firm, Ackerman Practice Management in New York City and by 2016 her firm was serving clients nationwide.
Ms. Ackerman's motivation is seeing results for her clients and bringing them increased financial security and decreased stress. Among the notable highlights of her career, Ms. Ackerman's most notable achievement continues to be her ability to dramatically increase practice revenue year over year for each of her clients. While increasing revenue significantly, Ms. Ackerman prides herself on creating a positive and healthy working environment for the team. She feels that if there is a happy and healthy team dynamic everyone works well together and the business thrives.
Looking toward the future, Ms. Ackerman intends to broaden her firm's reach, expanding into the UK and preparing the company for her son to join as VP of business operations in the UK. Additionally Ms. Ackerman is expanding her continuing education platform into a virtual environment to address all business and clinical challenges facing the medical and dental industry in these extraordinary times.
