I am passionate about:
I am passionate about developing products that help people improve their health and wellness. I'm passionate about making sure people who are hungry get fed. I am passionate about helping children who are under-served or have special needs get access to the medical and dental care they need.
Professional experience:
I have over 20-years of experience developing solutions that address complex problems in healthcare quality. I've worked in number of organizations including consulting, integrated payer-provider delivery systems, and quality improvement organizations. In my current role, I bring together individuals at all levels from across the enterprise to envision, develop and launch products meant to improve the quality of patient care. I recently completed a continuing education program at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health where I was introduced to the concept of "adaptive leadership." I realized that, for me, it was the missing piece in my leadership puzzle. As I have been promoted to increasing levels of responsibility, I have been mystified by the politics, hidden agendas and general resistance to needed changes. I implemented the recommended "technical solutions" to these challenges including project management and meeting management techniques. But of course, they have been insufficient in driving and maintaining the kinds of change needed to continually improve and innovate our products. Dealing with the root causes of the issues and applying the "adaptive leadership" framework is an exciting opportunity to advance my work and create environments that will sustain the change.
I can thought partner on the following topics:
