ABOUT ME

I was born on Manhattan Island between bodegas and a power substation. Three presidents and a few wars later, I graduated from the United Nations International School and moved to Wisconsin where I received degrees in English literature (B.A., '07) and public health (M.P.H., '15).

Since then, I've worked for 10 years in communications and project management, including writing syndicated news. In 2009, I shifted my career by starting work for a practicing family physician-researcher on research from a patient-centered perspective, which ranged from learning about the medical home, dissemination and implementation, and even directing patient vignettes. Now I work with Charlie at healthfinch helping customers explore possibilities using analytics.

Outside of work, I serve on the board of directors of The Road Home, and previously led a local radio station's community advisory board as chair for two terms. Internationally, I support disaster relief with the Field Innovation Team.

 
 

Mixed Methods Researcher

Numbers help with insights from large databases, rather than the depth of a qualitative case. Regression statistics and quasi-experimental approaches can explore outcomes alongside business data benchmarks. I'm experienced in the manipulation and analysis of population health data. My work as a statistician has been published in Academic Medicine and the International Journal of Healthcare Management.

But numbers don't always tell the whole story. I'm trained in focus groups and one-on-one interviews, including usability testing. My qualitative work has been published in Health Environments Research & Design JournalImplementation Science, and the Journal of Innovation in Health Informatics

 
 

Syndicated tech writer

I've been syndicated by over 100+ news sites and wires, including Thomson Reuters, LexisNexis, and The New York Times. I primarily reported on financial trends and news, with a focus on clean tech, such as alternative energy, the smart grid, and the electric vehicle sector, and corporate social responsibility.

 

presenter and workshop facilitator

I've presented to audiences of 30+ on original research findings and study design at national conferences. I've taught small groups how to engage in qualitative and quantitative methodological approaches, research strategy, and collaborative writing.

 

Community-engaged

I'm committed to improving my local environment with my non-profit board commitments. I volunteer with the Field Innovation Team as a strategist to help meaningfully evaluate global disaster relief work. In the past, I've edited newsletters for environmental non-profits.
