I feel like I've done it all at this point. After working in the industry and recruiting for it over the past 18 years, there's probably not a role I haven't covered.

Special power

I consider building relationships as my superpower, skillfully fostering meaningful connections and nurturing strong bonds with others.

I love the most

The slow march forward in the R&D space. I’m constantly amazed at what these medicines and technology can achieve. The next few decades will be huge!
For me, it is all about development and seeing people grow. It is the thing that inspires me the most.
