Gillette has worked in hospital finance and operations for nearly three decades, according to Tampa Bay Times. She spent the past 13 years at hospitals in the for-profit HCA chain, Health Management Associates. She has also worked at Tampa General Hospital and USF.

“I am not a clinician, so I defer to our physicians and nurses for that guidance,” said Gillette in the Tampa Bay Times article. “You will find me in the hospital. You don’t find me sitting behind the desk.”
