I am a senior business development and product management executive focused on technology enabled services in healthcare. For the past 15 years, I’ve been working on how technology (mHealth, remote monitoring) can improve engagement and the consumer experience to drive financial and clinical outcomes. While it seems funny now, my first healthcare project back in the late 1990s was to convince health plans why they should have a web presence and how consumers might use the web to interact with them.
At the same time, I’ve been luck to have had experience in other industries – CPG, telecom, retail. I believe this perspective along with the Da Vinci approach I’ve taken to my education allow me to blend creative and analytical skills to think differently while applying a methodical approach to product development and business growth.
I’ve worked in several different size companies. I’ve worked in large Fortune 500 companies, and I’ve tried to start my own company (and several in between). (For more of a resume, you can see my LinkedIn profile.) The common theme is that I like to be passionate about what I’m working on, and I like to work with smart teams who are trying to create new models and drive change.
While I love product development, I’m not much of an Ivory Tower person. I enjoy being out in the field meeting with clients and talking with other companies in a co-opetition approach to growing the pie. Additionally, I really enjoy presenting at conferences (you can see some here), and I’ve found the blog and social media as a great outlet to find new things, engage with my peers, and think through ideas.
