Key Accomplishments

I believe that incredible value can be found in better engaging people in things that matter to them. Engagement is across the entire brand experience, whether at the highest level with brand perceptions or at the transaction level with digital communications or direct customer contact.

Recently, I've been focused on peoples' experience in managing their health and healthcare, most of which has been till recently delegated to the clinical interaction and core doctor-patient relationship, insufficiently done by the health plans, or under exploration by many new and innovative health and wellness apps. It is found in challenging and advancing the traditional approach.

I am a business builder, always challenging the status quo and developing new ways to engage customers. I’ve led marketing for startups, leading to successful public offering. For Microsoft, I founded and led the worldwide competency for relationship marketing, and developed, sold-in, and launched their worldwide approach to engaging mid-market customers. And most recently, for Group Health, I built out their marketing capabilities and developed and sold-in a vision for the improvement to its approach to population health management, now an enterprise priority.

I recently made the tough decision to no longer pursue a startup which intended to provide a solution to better engage patients in their health. It is a solution that would improve outcome, reduce cost, and importantly, dramatically improve the overall patient experience.

Now I am looking for new opportunities and advisory roles so I can continue to leverage my expertise to bring things that matter to the marketplace.
