Founder & Chief Executive Officer

Health Innovation Strategies

I am an experienced leader in innovation strategy, management, and infrastructure, as well as the creator of the healthcare "Innovation Life Cycle" paradigm. I have extensive experience in digital health including telehealth, and am passionate about the way it will transform healthcare.

As the first Chief Innovation Officer at Boston Children’s Hospital, I launched and built the ground-breaking, highly successful Innovation Acceleration Program. Previously, I was Kaiser Permanente’s first Vice President of Innovation and Advanced Technology. While at Biogen, I developed the vision and strategy for the "Innovation Beyond the Molecule" program. My many years of experience include conceptualizing, building, and running new ventures. I love building new capabilities-- I am an entrepreneur at heart.
