Marina Lofley – NEMT Network

Where to follow: Instagram | TikTok 

Marina Lofley started her own NEMT business at 23, where she quickly learned the many challenges entrepreneurs face in the NEMT space.  

As CEO of the NEMT Network, she uses her experiences to help coach and provide guidance for other NEMT operators who face the same or similar challenges that she did.  

With a focus on TikTok and Instagram, she uses these platforms to offer quick tips for growing an NEMT business and inspiration for those struggling to break into the industry. 

“I love helping NEMT providers because I understand the daunting process, especially during the start-up phase. NEMT is not just a business for me, it’s personal. When I started my NEMT business, there weren’t many coaches or resources. Having someone to contact who has industry experience can save a new provider an abundance of time and money. 

“Far too often, I see people wanting to enter the industry without understanding the reality of the day-to-day operations. A lack of knowledge can cause poor KPIs, customer service, exorbitant wait times, provider no-shows, and—ultimately—a failed business. Educating aspiring NEMT providers on the industry can improve their business, provide a higher quality of service for patients, and strengthen the industry.”
