About

As the Founder and Principal at Patient Authentic, I'm uniquely positioned to help you engage patients authentically. Here are some reasons why.

I'm a patient.
I was diagnosed with psoriasis at the age of 7. Psoriatic arthritis and Crohn’s disease followed at the age of 19.

From the moment I was in a hospital bed, I unearthed my truest self and found a calling in dedicating my personal and professional life to patient advocacy.

I’ve helped build startup companies from the ground up.
My entrepreneurial spirit pushed me to take the plunge and join two budding startups as one of their first employees pre-funding. Alongside phenomenal teams I helped take these companies to funded, established brands with the patient voice firmly infused in the fabric of the company.

I’ve worked with some of largest pharmaceutical companies in the world.
Companies have leveraged my expertise both as an autoimmune patient and patient engagement professional to build relationships with the patient community and develop strategic roadmaps to infuse patient engagement from bench to bedside (compliantly, of course!) 

I’m the Vice Chair on the board of directors for a major advocacy non-profit.
I serve on the board of the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association (AARDA) working closely with leadership to develop strategic plans for AARDA’s present and future.

I care deeply about the future of healthcare.
I care. A lot. I am so passionate about the work that I do. Of everything on this list, I believe this credential is by far the most important. As an advocate, I have a responsibility to do everything I possibly can to make the world a better place for patients. It’s why I’m here and why I’m ready to work with you!

The moral of the story?
I deliver a dynamic, multifaceted approach to the patient engagement work of the companies with whom I partner. My experience working in roles across the healthcare ecosystem paired with a deep passion for patient advocacy uniquely positions me to take your patient engagement work to the next level.
