What should you know about me?
The word impossible is the best invitation in the world to me. Say something can’t be done or would be too difficult to accomplish and I’m on it. Whether managing through a complex crisis situation or taking on the cause of an underdog, I bring boundless curiosity and consistent optimism to strategic and considered counsel focused on delivering results.

What career achievement am I most proud of?
The ability to play a role in an advocacy campaign that led to the establishment of a new pediatric hospital in Medical City at Lake Nona was something I’ll always be thankful for. Working with local and state elected officials, community organizations, and key influencers, I helped craft an influencer driven campaign that resulted in Certificate of Need state approval for the hospital in a record 22-month timeframe despite significant opposition.
