Welcome!

I advise health care executives, investors, entrepreneurs and policy makers about the dynamic health care industry. Over the course of my 20+ year career, I have worked extensively with providers – the hospitals, doctors, ambulatory surgery centers – that deliver care. I appreciate the impact that policy proposals, market forces and new technology will have on how the health care system actually functions. Wondering what will happen with Washington’s latest effort to reform health care? Ask me. Can health care really be “Amazoned”? And what does blockchain have to do with it? I have an opinion. In fact, I have lots of opinions.

I bring new ideas to health care because I am not always thinking about health care. I majored in architecture at Yale and earned masters’ degrees in architecture and business from the University of Michigan. I think about how things work, how much they cost, how people are impacted by their surroundings, and what drives human behavior. I’ve been perfectly trained to study the health care industry despite the fact that I had no intention of doing it when I was enrolled in school.

Over the years I’ve waxed poetic about the country of Lebanon, bemoaned the lack of gender equity in America, predicted the fracturing of the Republican Party, called out the ineptitude of the Malaysian government, got called out by the New Zealand police for speeding and proposed a solution to the global refugee crisis. I’ve written a novel, Mama’s Got a Brand New Job, about the working mother conundrum. And of course I also publish regularly about health care in industry journals and other media outlets.

My latest project combines my professional experience with my signature brand of unique strategic analysis for a book called Health Care: Meet the American Dream. It is a reinvention of our health care system using the principles of the American Dream. The project is currently in production and is expected to be released in October 2018. In support of the book, I have conducted extensive research on policy and health care financing. Sharing leading-edge industry information with my clients is an enriching part of my engagements.
