1. Why did you decide to do a webinar with Business Review Webinars?

I believe it is important to connect as an industry in order to address complicated issues that impact the ability for patients to access appropriate therapies.

2. What are you looking forward to explaining to the audience?

I look forward to sharing opportunities that will address the above issues.  As access to therapies becomes more difficult, it is important to assess appropriate levers and partnerships that will potentially alleviate some of these market conditions and pressures for those involved.

3. How did you get into the industry and what do you most enjoy about your role?  

I spent several years both in sales and marketing within the tobacco industry.  This is what brought me into the healthcare sector.  Working on a daily basis and as a career on thoughts, processes and services that contribute to a person’s well-being is more rewarding than its polar opposite.

4. What do you enjoy most about your role?

Working with some of the top minds in the industry.  Learning and working on key issues that impact the industry on a daily basis provides a never-ending complexity that keeps a smile on my face.

5. Where is your favourite place in the world and why?

While I enjoy the comradery and engagement on a daily basis, I very much enjoy the solitude of the desert environment regardless of location.  I will typically take an annual motorcycle trip to various locations in which I get the chance to reflect and decompress from everything.
