I am a...Healthcare Strategist, Innovation Architect, and Travel Wandress that has been to nine countries and counting (this picture is from atop of a London landmark). My love of science and business came in the age of managed care and shifted my career from physician to global public health and technology. I asked companies about their social responsibility charter before the phrase was popular and continue to create value for the greater good along with sustainable profitability.

Professionally, I received my Bachelors in Biology Pre-Med, and my Masters in Public Health and Business Administration respectively, focusing on health systems management, end-to-end commercial product strategy development, and being a liaison for innovation. In my spare time... I have authored a fashion/beauty blog with PrettyCity.com and Billiondollarbabes, created one of the first fundraising events for New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina- Return to the Crescent, became an ONCHIT HIE grant reviewer and continue to serve on several boards. I am a lover of all things creative and one can usually find me at an art museum, jazz house, play or trying my hand at dancing. Feel free to visit my LinkedIn profile if you'd like to see more.
