I'm a recovering consultant turned healthcare strategy and growth leader. My day (and night) job is leading operations for a New York-based startup building a new treatment model for alcohol use disorder. I’m also an active angel investor and advisor to early stage healthcare companies. I'm an avid consumer of the written word, wannabe Julia Child, and would always rather be traveling.
