I like meeting new people with creative ideas and building solutions to set them up for success. companies have an infectious optimism, and working with fosters my own creativity.

Experience: I advise life sciences and digital health companies in connection with structuring and negotiating intellectual property licenses, strategic collaborations and other complex commercial transactions. The commonality among life sciences and digital health founders is their innovative approach to developing solutions for healthcare needs. I help in the early days develop a strategy for working with outside partners to further development of these solutions.  

Making connections: One of my favorite things is when I am able to connect clients who have synergies in their business plans. I once invited two of my clients to a conference to speak on a panel together with intent to introduce them because I knew that their businesses were complimentary and they both had similar energy and passion for their work. They immediately hit it off, and two years later signed a partnership together.  

Off the clock: You can find me skiing or running. I also enjoy spending time with my family, walking my dog, and trying out delicious new restaurants. 

Recommendations: I love audiobooks! I recently finished the audiobook, Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus, which is an amazing story of a misunderstood, brilliant woman. Her tenacity in pursuing her passion is inspiring – I highly recommend it. I also enjoy podcasts; Freakonomics is one of my favorites for its deep dive into different economics-related issues.
