I am a committed health and wellness entrepreneur passionate about making a difference in the lives of others. My mission is to be part of the health reform debate that brings quality, affordable health care to the 47 millions Americans who lack coverage; with an equally passionate commitment to live authentically, while promoting healthy life choices. My education includes a Bachelor's from UC Berkeley, and a Master of Public Health in Health Education and Behavioral Sciences from the UCLA. After graduation, my path included senior management positions for major national, and regional hospitals, health systems, medical groups and physician networks; where I managed strategy and negotiated multimillion dollar contracts between hospitals, physicians, and insurance companies, including HMOs, PPOs, or other managed health plans.
