Driven by curiosity.

We can’t help it, we ask questions. We love finding out what makes things tick. Even what makes them break. That innate curiosity is a part of every one of the 60+ people here at Prairie Dog. And with a passion for health care challenges, we’re able to use that spirit of discovery and experimentation to help our clients find solutions that transcend the obvious. Besides, we wouldn’t be very good Prairie Dogs if we didn’t love digging.

The top dog

As the president and co-founder of Prairie Dog, Jerry brings more than 30 years of health care leadership and experience to the table. A nationally recognized strategist, Jerry has helped clients shape everything from global brand positioning to service line growth to strategic planning support and everything in between. Before founding Prairie Dog, he led marketing, planning and product development at a large midwestern health system. He is a frequent speaker at national and regional conferences, including 15 SHSMD Annual Conferences. When he’s not working or traveling (or working while traveling), Jerry enjoys coaching his showcase baseball team and spending time with his baby grandson, Jackson.
