As a child, Kistein was inspired by Oprah Winfrey - not to be in entertainment but to make an impact in the world. It took a long grind to help her see exactly how she could and would. Kistein spent her days pursuing her education and her nights working at various roles in healthcare. Her studies showed her just how powerful policies could be on outcomes. Her jobs - from in-home health aid to the emergency room - revealed the reality of care disparities. She decided to dedicate herself to attacking healthcare inequities and fighting for those who are underserved, ignored and disregarded. It's from this spirit and commitment to 'humanize healthcare" that her company Patient Orator was born.
