When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
An Airline pilot. I loved to fly and my next-door neighbour flew for Air Canada. When I was 14, having a Corvette and a swimming pool and working 40 hours a month seemed pretty attractive.
What motivates you to do what you do?
Both my mother and father encouraged me from a very young age by saying “no matter what you do, strive to the be the best at it.” It resonates with me to this day in all that I do.
What are you looking forward to most about the Partnership Conference?
I hope to learn more about the innovative ways that we can improve patient care through digital health technology.
What emoji do you use most often?
