Chief Technology Officer, Government Programs
“I have lived my life both personally and professionally trying to create environments where I can make or help people make a distinct difference in their lives. Throughout my life I have shared in the struggles of life, and have shared in the struggles that our consumers endure through their families’, friends’, and acquaintances with mental health issues. People deserve to enjoy the opportunities life has to offer and I intend to help them through it by creating systems of care that can help them along their path. I joined OptumHealth because they have given me the opportunity to work with similarly dedicated people that have one mission...to make it better for others”
