I am an experienced business professional with a diverse background and ability to guide, connect, and execute.  I am passionate about working with companies and individuals to help them reach their goals and achieve their dreams.  As a San Francisco Bay Area native, I’ve experienced first-hand how leveraging technology can help companies get to market faster and optimize overall business processes.

As a clear communicator, people who work with me know that I am going to provide them with the information they need, in a straightforward and direct manner, to help them make the best possible decisions.  I practice radical candor.

As a natural connector, I connect people, ideas, and people with ideas and this is integral to who I am and how I serve the world.

With my extensive experience in life sciences and IT, my angel investing with Sand Hill Angels, and the continual search for ideal opportunities, I am excited about investing in digital health, specifically in FemTech (women's healthcare) and PediaTech (pediatric healthcare).  Why FemTech and PediaTech?  Over 80% of household healthcare spend is controlled by women and over 50% of the population is female.  This is a green-field opportunity right now.  I also look to invest in female founders.  Why female founders?  The research and data support that investing in women makes good business sense and not enough investors are taking advantage of this opportunity.  More to come on this soon!
