Director of Demand Center. As part of the marketing team, I help BrightInisght bring our platform to market and generate interest among our key biopharma and medtech accounts.

Can you share a bit of background on yourself?

I’m born and raised in New York City (I’ve got a strong accent) and have lived in Manhattan for a long time. I went to Ohio State, my degree is in accounting (yep, its true) and I’m a huge Buckeye football fan.

What is your favorite food?

I’m lucky enough to live in a great food city and consider myself a bit of a foodie so that’s a tough one. In the last two weeks I’ve had Egyptian, Basque and Thai food, that said, my desert isle choice will always be Italian.

Where is your favorite place on earth?

Well besides NYC of course. I recently returned from a national park trip that took me to Yellowstone, Bryce, Zion and the Grand Canyon. All spectacular places but I thought Zion was magical.

BI has created a such a fantastic work environment. Inclusive, nimble, collaborative, driven yet relaxed. BI is a great place to work, period.

What are your hobbies outside of work?

I’ve learned the guitar in the last year and enjoy playing. I think I’ve got a song or two in me and my playing has improved! The only positive of Covid for me has been that. I also enjoy golfing and I’m an avid reader.
