1. Best piece of advice you’ve been given 

Believe that anything is possible.

2. Worst piece of advice you’ve been given 

If you want a great career, you should work for a big company.

3. What would you tell your younger self? 

It’s all about people. Surround yourself with high quality people…people you can learn from and people who want to learn. People you can trust…people who represent diverse backgrounds. Teams – not individuals – create success. When we set out on business adventures, we’re never certain of the ultimate outcome. But if we are part of great teams, we know the journey will be stimulating and rewarding.

4. What excites you most about the future of your industry? 

Broadly speaking, I think of technology as my industry. We are living in such phenomenal times. Seeing how technology is enabling, transforming, and enhancing people’s lives is nothing short of miraculous. I love seeing its impact not just on individuals and companies, but on society at large. While there is so much yet to be discovered, it’s remarkable to see technology’s positive impact on everything from poverty to world health. In my career, I’ve loved sitting at the intersection of business and technology and helping to translate needs and opportunities into meaningful products with powerful impact. I’m incredibly excited to see how technology will not only continue to improve people’s health, but to empower people to take more control of their own health and wellness by learning more, tracking their own key health metrics and creating meaningful remedies, cures and programs to feel better and live longer with a high quality of life.

5. Who or what is your biggest inspiration?

This is a tough one because I’m inspired by many, but above all else, my family:

  • My son for his insatiable quest for learning and natural joy of life – reminders to try to maintain those virtues throughout my life.

  • My husband because he is by far the most productive person I’ve ever met.

  • My mother whose survival skills are unmatched.

  • And my beloved Grandmother who lived to 100 and whose resilience has been an unending inspiration to our family and whose smile brightened the days of everyone who had the good fortune to encounter it.
