My first job was working for my family’s home health agency in League City, Texas. I started in the file room and worked my way up to patient scheduling and, finally, strategic planning before my family successfully sold our sizable business.
I did my nurse’s training in the Houston Medical Center. It was during my training at Hermann Hospital, Methodist Hospital, and MD Anderson Cancer Center where I had the opportunity to learn from some of the finest clinicians in the country and my passion for treating patients was cultivated.
Prior to working with VERTESS, I strategically lead sales planning initiatives for organizations such as GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis, Bristol-Myers Squibb, and Astra Zeneca. I’ve launched numerous blockbuster medications that have made significant differences in many patients' lives. This experience has given me a unique understanding of contractual arrangements and the impact managed care and government payers can have on the overall well-being of a company and/or industry. In my 20 plus years of experience in pharmaceutical sales, I won numerous national awards with four of the top pharmaceutical companies in the world.
As I know from personal experience, the road to a successful transaction can have twists and turns. In previous positions, I spent a great deal of time analyzing data to strategically grow our market share. In my role at VERTESS, I am taking that same data-driven, research-based approach to best help healthcare entrepreneurs understand their options in the marketplace and assist them in reaching their goals.
