Content Producer, Rabble Rouser, and Fire Starter in Richmond, Virginia
In an effort to recover from two decades in Hunter Thompson's "cheap plastic hallway" - network TV news, specifically - I hung out my shingle as a storyteller.
I use my skill as a speaker, writer, producer and erstwhile standup comic to drive change in healthcare and healthcare tech. I self-branded as "Occupation: Foole - Healthcare Edition" in memory of one of my idols, George Carlin.
How good am I at talking? I talked my way out of police custody in Saudi Arabia. Not bad for a girl, right?
A professional rabble-rouser, I wrote a book about managing medical care, Cancer for Christmas: Making the Most of a Daunting Gift, that's fierce, funny, and became an Amazon best seller.
Now I'm producing a podcast, Healthcare Is HILARIOUS! - it's a weekly-on-Thursdays hot take on the sh*t show that is American healthcare. Science-based, snark-driven, with super savvy guests! Listen here.
I'm loud, I'm opinionated, and I'll either drive change, or go down in flames battling to make shift happen.
