Columbus, Ohio Area
I have the honor of serving as the first Chief Innovation Officer at The Ohio State University College of Nursing, the #1 public nursing college in the nation. During my time in healthcare, I've studied and focused on neurosurgical research on Tethered Spinal Cord Syndrome, skilling the healthcare workforce in India, developing Innovation curriculum, designing clinical spaces, improving patient throughput in the pediatric hematology/oncology ambulatory settings, promoting patient safety and satisfaction in one of the nation’s largest Emergency Departments, transitioning organizations into new physical locations, and developing novel commercial innovations to enhance patient outcomes.

I am the proud founder of The Innovation Studio, a moveable makerspace Frankensteined together with an incubator to promote interprofessional collaboration at The Ohio State University. The Innovation Studio combines my passions of connecting great people and fostering ideation through the innovation and commercialization process. I am also the founder of The Starting Line, which takes some of the components of the Innovation Studio and pairs them with the expertise and mentorship of the Columbus entrepreneurial ecosystem.

As an entrepreneur, I've founded two healthcare startups and a small real estate firm. In my current venture, I serve as the CEO and Co-Founder of Quality Health Communications, a software based tool to help healthcare providers deliver the right care at the right time.
