Why Healthcare? I started in neuroscience research. When I finish my undergrad, I worked at the Boston VA healthcare system. One thing I realized working directly with patients was I saw myself working in clinical research.

Hot Topic that should healthcare leaders agenda: Idea of translation

How have you created results by doing things differently? What we do in Hey, Charlie is take a scientific approach to proving efficacy and outcomes through IOD back studies with actual patients.

Setbacks that you learned from: More of a challenge - there are huge social barriers to people in the country.

Proudest leadership moments: Every single time that I’m able to talk to patients, no matter how big or small in a way that I feel they’re open to talk about the problem and solution makes really most proud.
