Nichole Adler


Nichole’s specialty is envisioning systems in innovative ways to ensure a win-win for shareholders and stakeholders. Founder of Summit Clinical Research, Nichole contracted with Fortune 500 Companies like Bristol-Meyers Squibb and Johnson  & Johnson, as well as Astellas and Orthofix. She developed a new paradigm for study management in which data collection was so complete and accurate, sponsors were concerned the FDA would question its validity. No worries though, inspectors agreed it was legit! And Investigators, contractors and staff members were thrilled with the ease of using the system as well as the generous paychecks!

Nichole realized she had a knack for business ten years into her nursing career. She was asked to evaluate the financial viability of a hospital unit which was in the red, with a history of concerning issues . Instead of pouring over financials, she first went to spend time with the staff – not just nurses, but family MDs, surgeons and surgery staff, physical therapists and housekeeping. She sought to understand their motivations and desires, to gather their recommendations for improvement and to analyze the root cause of the problems. Utilizing the information gathered, Nichole stayed for a year to support establishment a lucrative self-pay service line, additional insurance paid service line, and expanded the surgical population with specialty capital equipment. A culture of cooperation was cultivated and systems initiated in which both patients and staff members were well-cared for. The hospital was also pleased that within that year, the unit was back in the black!

“I believe strongly that no one can do their jobs well without targeted, structured systems. Everyone is important to optimal functioning of the enterprise and all voices should be heard. No one wakes up in the morning and hopes they will fail at their job that day, but if they work within an unsupportive system, they have no ability to succeed.” – Nichole Adler

Casey Grieve

Director of Operations

As Director of Operations, Casey brings her dynamic systems knowledge and positive attitude to the Ervinas team. She has an outstanding ability to empower those around her. By practicing a growth mindset and teaching others, she creates collaborative and cohesive work environments that benefit the bottom line.

Learn More

Previously, Casey was the Director of Human Resources for a property management company. As the company started to expand into new states, she was able to quickly learn new regulations and procedures. She accurately provided all HR services before and during COVID, and in an ever-changing climate, she was able to take on a wide variety of job duties not usually attributed to Human Resources management. Casey took on not only payroll, accounts payable and compliance, but also managed marketing, training, vendor relations and property needs, establishing the best system for the needs of each position.

Early on, while pursuing a degree in psychology, she simultaneously started her career onboarding and training employees in the hospitality industry. Within no time, management lauded her skill for teaching and motivating their teams. She was promoted and sent to several locations to mentor teams and build efficient, positive work environments. Casey recognized that with the proper training, employees were able to provide better service, which in turn boosted sales revenue.

When presented with the opportunity to transition her career into property management, Casey was hired as a Community Liaison. Within the first 2 months, her sales far exceeded other employees and she continued to skyrocket to become the top salesperson in the state of Colorado. Later on, she excelled by bringing company required insurance compliance from a measly 63% to a whopping 98%! She then developed a training program for the company that assisted poorly performing properties to meet their financial goals. The program resulted in high occupancy, significantly improved employee retention rates and provided for long-term, durable success of these once struggling entities.
