What motivates you?
I am motivated by the opportunity to impact and improve the lives of millions of others, especially when it comes to their health and wellbeing. With my daily work, I want to support bold ideas and most innovative technologies and empower like-minded founders who share the vision to revolutionize healthcare as we know it.
What brought you to this job?
Growing up, I enjoyed discussions with my mum who happily shared her experiences as a medical doctor, patiently explaining the inner workings and intricacies of healthcare systems. She was the one who inspired me to build a career around understanding, building, and improving healthcare. I truly believe that MTIP is a great place to continue this professional journey.
I can’t live without...
My Kindle. I would never leave the house without the eBook – you never know when your train gets delayed or a friend comes late to the meeting. Reading is my way to de-stress and relax and I am always open to book recommendations, my Goodreads list counts 400+ books and it keeps expanding!
