Host, The Shades of Entrepreneurship™

Past-President, American Association of Physician Liaisons 


Before the pandemic, I dedicated nearly two decades to navigating the healthcare landscape, refining my expertise in marketing, business development, and strategy. Syracuse University's Whitman School of Business further fueled my pursuit of business.
When COVID-19 hit, traditional learning shifted to virtual classrooms, prompting a strategic pivot. Immersing myself in publications like the Harvard Business Review, I absorbed insights into entrepreneurship while witnessing the pandemic's impact on my community.
Motivated to support my community, I launched "The Shades of Entrepreneurship" podcast.

This platform celebrates the resilience of Pacific Northwest entrepreneurs through direct conversations with a diverse range of guests. From small business owners to nationally recognized entrepreneurs, their stories illuminate our local economy and offer practical business wisdom. Join us for inspiration and insights.
