Healthcare Business Insights
Tell us a little about yourself?
Call me optimistic, but many problems be solved through connection and communication. That was a fundamental truth while I studied and received a degree in journalism from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and still holds true today through during my five years as a manager at a Milwaukee-based research company, HBI.
What are 3 words to describe your company?
Partner to Providers

How is artificial intelligence going to permeate healthcare delivery and healthcare finance?
If you were stuck on an island what three things would you bring?
Lots of pens and paper to write with, a big bag of peanut M&Ms, sunscreen (not a fun answer, but both of my parents are nurses)
Any random facts you could share with us?
I love hiking, reading sci-fi, and Mexican food
You’re happiest when?
