Mathew is currently working on a doctorate in healthcare management and leadership from California Intercontinental University in Irvine, Calif. He holds a master’s degree in social work. He is an appointee of the Nursing Facility Administrators Advisory Committee by Texas Governor Greg Abbot, as well as a member of the American College of Healthcare Executives.
