  • Senior Product ManagerJune 2017 to presentSouth San Francisco, California
    It's a big week. I've decided to begin a new chapter in my career using my background as an entrepreneur and software product manager to try and make a positive impact on people's health.

    To that end, I've this week transitioned to Verily (formerly known as Google Life Sciences) to work on mapping out new solutions (using hardware, software, and services) to improve the quality and cost of care for patients with cardiovascular conditions. (Yes, that's quite broad.)

    It's exciting - and a bit scary - to enter into a totally new field like cardiology where everyone in the space has decades more experience and training. I'm learning a lot about the heart and humility as I ramp up and explore the best way to drive patient impact.
