Dr. Luke started his career as a jet-setting sports marketer working with some of the most famous athletes in the world. Then, after a career change to become a nursing home administrator brought on by his grandmother's disease process, he climbed the healthcare ladder and ascended to become a hospital CEO by age 32. He also oversaw acute rehab, behavioral health, home health & hospice as a health system Vice President, and is an advocate for non-medical home care. After ten years as a hospital CEO, a new owner arrived and Luke was out of a job, had no health insurance for his family, and his mother was subsequently diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. Soon after he penned his first book and became a best-selling author. He now finds solace in sharing his experiences as a caretaker for his mom and being without health insurance for his family has given him a deeply emotional understanding of the other side of care delivery.
