I am a leader in the health care industry. My experience spans diverse business functions in each segment – integrated delivery systems, insurance, clinic management and pharmacy. Recognized for my ability to cut through the chaos in the volatile health care space, I focus and zero in on practical solutions. Whether speaking or writing for leadership forums focused on industry trends, I lend my voice and opinion to advocate for improvement.
My strength is uncovering new business opportunities amidst government scrutiny and regulation, understanding its’ viability, scalability and sustainability. By recognizing evolving healthcare issues and innovations, I improve efficiency and quality care with a strong patient-centric view. When questions arise, I am tenacious at finding answers.
As a leader, I blend a practical, down to earth approach with wit, breaking down barriers and building cross-functional alignment. I engage sincerely and curiously, asking questions and gaining consensus, but am able to discern the need for decisive action. Generously sharing my time and knowledge, I am fiercely committed to developing talent and have cultivated trust with diverse stakeholders ranging from employees to boards of directors and shareholders.
