I’m a consumer strategy leader, business development expert, healthcare provider, innovator, multi-patent holder and health industry influencer.
♦ Currently, I’m reviewing and in discussions on full-time employment opportunities in business development and/or innovation for healthcare providers or healthcare technology organizations. (NO Payers – unless integrated with a provider.)
♦ I’m also a powerful speaker driving home a passion and purpose. “Leave em’ clapping, standing, and wanting more” (RECENT KEYNOTE ON TELEHEALTH HERE)
♦ Also, I advise companies – strictly on a paid basis.

My purpose and passion is rooted in leading and managing business development and market growth for hospitals, health systems, and health tech organizations who are in expansion mode.
I also carry experience in business models, consumer behavior, persuasive communication, high-level networking, intellectual property, different healthcare segments, business models, plus product and service creation and improvement.
A Unique Background:
Critical thinking has always played a big part in my ability to separate causes vs. consequences. I employ methods such as breaking big problems into smaller components, defining problem statements, asking focused questions, and looking through new lenses to not duplicate past failure – and arrive at new solutions.
★ Spent 20 years as a health provider, where I drove growth and quality care. I treated more than 50 patients per day, as part of successful consumer-to-patient transitioning – so I know the consumer and patient mindset, especially with regard to communicating on financial and care concerns.
★ Created a unique & patented system for healthcare subrogation and 3rd party liability claim identification (4 issued U.S. patents – software)
★ Stepped away from health care, where I transitioned to leading strategy. Directed a terrific marketing team, which grew revenue in just a single marketing operation by 440%.
★ In 2017, I founded the fast-growing RED HOT HEALTHCARE podcast. After nearly 50 leadership shows in 2017 and over 30,000 downloads, it has become one of the fastest-growing healthcare industry listens. In addition, I grew a vast network of C-suite leaders and key-decision makers.
★ I carry a wide & diverse knowledge base and skill set – plus growing influence/connections with many healthcare industry leaders.
