Chief Field Operations Officer
"The best thing about my job is the people, hands down. There is a common excitement and true dedication to our patients and making sure that they live their best life possible. Our people are relentless in their commitment. It is truly invigorating. When not at work, I enjoy spending time with family, time outdoors and I love to bake, especially pies."
