What’s your role at BrightInsight?

Director of Commercial Strategy and Operations

Can you share a bit of background on yourself?

Before joining BrightInsight, I was a healthcare and technology focused project leader at the Boston Consulting Group and worked for four years at a neuroscience digital health startup in the UK. I hold an MBA in Health Care Management from Wharton and a PhD in Psychiatry from the University of Oxford.

What is your favorite food?

I love Malaysian food! It reminds me of my mum's home cooking from my childhood.

Where is your favorite place on earth?

I was fortunate enough to visit Antarctica on a 'leadership venture' during business school, and my memories of watching the sunsets there are some of my lifetime favorites.

Which of BrightInsight’s Values most resonates with you and why?

Passionate about transforming care and patient outcomes

My personal mission is to improve the mental and physical wellbeing of society, and I am proud to be part of an organization where being ‘passionate about transforming care and patient outcomes’ is a central part of our values and the values of customers.

What is your favorite part about working at BrightInsight?

Since my first week at BrightInsight I have had the opportunity to take on and drive forward challenging projects that have a real impact on our commercial operations and company performance. I love working in a fast-paced environment with an inspiring manager and motivated teammates and learning something new every day.

What are your hobbies outside of work?

In my spare time, I enjoy cycling, skiing (across Europe, US, Japan), hiking and traveling (COVID-19 aside), and I am a member of the Board of Directors for the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) in San Francisco. We recently welcomed a new puppy (Aria) into our home, so a lot of my ‘spare time’ is dedicated to applying my neuroscience background to reward/reinforcement dog training!
