What is your connection to our mission?
I have a close family member that was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder at a young age and have witnessed firsthand how early intervention can drastically change quality of life outcomes.
Why do you love helping children?
Navigating the healthcare system can be difficult. I want to make sure that getting care for children is as seamless as possible. I dedicate my time to creating operational excellence because I believe it is the foundation to creating a coordinated care journey for families. Children especially deserve timely and coordinated access to quality healthcare.
What are your hobbies?
I’m an avid reader. New ideas come from learning as much as I can about as many topics as possible!
What (or who) inspires you?
I have always been inspired by the actions of Dr. John Snow who, against the conventional wisdom of the day, and through careful mapping of a cholera outbreak, discovered that everyone affected has a single connection in common: they all retrieved water from the local Broad Street pump. Today, his ideas provide the foundation for how we find and stop disease all over the world. I consider this often. It is important to trace everything back to the start in order to have a strategy forward.
Tell us about your family. Any children? What about pets?
I have one amazing son, Andrew, who continues to inspire me everyday.
