S2 Ep. 4: The Importance of Mentors and Embracing Your Differences ft. Dawn Rock Connect with Encompass Health

When Dawn Rock’s mentor and supervisor approached her early in her career to help start a compliance department from the ground up, Rock recalls thinking, “That sounds terrible.” But her mentor challenged her to grow and try something new. Today, Rock is the chief compliance officer for Encompass Health. Had it not been for her mentor pushing her, Rock said she would not be in the role she is. In this episode of Connect, Rock talks with host Mary Ellen DeBardeleben on the importance of mentors and being open to new opportunities, as well as why you should embrace your differences.
