A first generation student, Ozzie studied psychology as an undergraduate with a clear sense that he wanted a career that would allow him to help others. Fast forward to now: Ozzie has spent the last 16 years working at Kaiser Permanente and his current role as chief administrative (CAO) of Kaiser Permanente South Bay has been instrumental in opening doors and creating educational and career opportunities for his fellow Panthers.

"I thought I would be heading to medical school after graduation... (at Chapman) I learned that I can have an impact on health care by fixing problems at the systems level, which is what I get to do in my role.. my career may not be what I imagined, but it gives me the opportunity everyday to be bold and show kindness by helping others access the care that they need." Ozzie inspires us all to be bold, be kind and to lead from where we stand.

Watch Ozzie's address to the Class of 2018 at commencement:
