Founder and CEO
I'm passionate about making a difference. Most of my career has been spent working with amazing people in hospitals around the world. Early in my career I was an Administrative Resident at University of Kentucky Healthcare and an Administrative Fellow at Johns Hopkins Medicine, then worked with an incredible team to open the first international standards hospital in Shanghai, China while working for Johns Hopkins International. I've also been a Vice President of Operations at Kosair Children's Hospital, then the Pediatric Service Line, at Norton Healthcare in Kentucky - one of the foremost leaders in healthcare quality (NQF National Quality Healthcare Award in 2011) in the United States. Most recently I was SVP of Clinical Operations, then Chief Strategy Officer at a terrific, growing children's hospital - Phoenix Children's Hospital. Connect with me on LinkedIn.
Co-founder and CIO
I have been involved with improving operational efficiencies and lowering healthcare costs for over 15 years. As an analyst fresh out of graduate school, I was tasked with identifying cost overages and developing solutions by developing a data analysis and modeling tool for Intermountain Healthcare. From there, I formed a company that specialized in developing inventory management and ERP solutions specific to the healthcare industry. Our software solutions manage inventory and procurement for distributors and non-profits - and everything in between. In addition, I have spent over a decade working with a large Private Equity firm specializing in healthcare to act as an interim Technology Officer for their portfolio companies.
