/ CURRENT WORK
As Chief Scientific Officer I see one of my roles as providing strategic insights from strong scientific evidence to drive creative storytelling. I am a strong advocate of a collaborative, integrative approach to insight generation. I also focus on ensuring that our Scientific and Medical Strategy offering is the best in the business. And it’s our people that make us the best.
/ PAST WORK
Before joining Discovery I worked for several years in biotech as a bench scientist and in pharma as a Medical Director. Ten years ago I shifted my career to healthcare communications. I have worked on both the advertising and medical communication side of the business as a SVP Medical Director, VP Account Director, and SVP Medical Strategist.
/ OUTSIDE OF WORK
I enjoy getting outdoors as much as possible. I like to bicycle (both road and mountain), hike, and backpack. Otherwise I am all about vegging out. My veg out activities: reading my Next App magazine subscriptions or catching up on DVRed programs while drinking either wine, vodka martinis, or whiskey.
