One of the most common questions Jay and I get is: How did Shorr Solutions get started?
Most importantly, Shorr Solutions is a family-owned and operated consulting company.
Jay spent decades in corporate America before “retiring” to work for his wife, Dr. Janee D. Steinberg. Dr. Steinberg is a board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon in South Florida. He served as the practice administrator and vice president of operations for nearly a decade. Further, He brought the single-office operation to its multi-office which became a multi-million dollar peak in 2011. Over the years, he began attending industry conferences and soon realized the industry lacked a strong practice management component. His attendance turned into a presence on the lecture circuit, and that presence led to a side business in the practice management consulting world.
On Thanksgiving week of 2011, Dr. Steinberg was diagnosed with cancer in Stage 4.
The medical practice and what happened is an entirely separate story, which Jay has penned in four parts through Surge Magazine here, here, and here. While his first priority of working to save his wife’s life, I(Mara Shorr), stepped in to keep moving Shorr Solutions forward.
In case you have not gathered by now, we’re a father-daughter team. I had recently founded my own marketing firm and worked hard to set up Shorr Solutions for the future. This would be for a time when we were both ready to give this business our all. My stepmother’s health was our first priority, and we’ve both agreed that we wouldn’t change one single thing about our actions in 2012.
On June 11th, it will have been five years since we lost my stepmother. Although we miss her every day, Shorr Solutions has turned from a small side project into a growing business. It continues to amaze us. Jay’s passion for assisting medical practices has turned into full-time careers that both of us love.
We combine our two backgrounds which brings a unique blend of strengths to the table. This happens when we work with press, write for industry publications, speak at industry conferences, and work with our clients.
We give this business our all and you’ll see that.
