For about 5 years I've been working in product management in the biotech field, and I love it here. It makes a big difference to me that I work in an industry that focuses on the health of others, and to be working at a company that identifies infectious disease agents during the height of pandemic has been really rewarding. I hope to always be so lucky as to work in a field that helps people live long, healthy, and (hopefully) fulfilling lives.
I'm a strong believer in the idea of the smart creative. I've studied biology, philosophy, psychology, sociology, and business, earning a degree 4 out of the 5 of those, including an MBA at the University of Utah. I've worked in various roles in marketing and new venture development, including up and downstream marketing, management roles, in well established companies, and in small companies and non-profits.
I thrive in situations where an employer wants to get ahead of the competition and where deep research and unexpected insights are valued: places where a novel approach or solution is embraced for the value it brings.
