Summary

I am seeking Board, Mediator and Leadership positions. I have served in leadership, mangement, entrepreneurial and professional roles. A many year history of being on the staff of major metropolitan hospitals has provided me with significant knowledge of multifaceted organizations. My unique set of skills combined with experience make me an ideal candidate for an independent director.

Additionally, my mediator training and experience would be valuable in discussion, solving disagreements, building consensus and decision making in a board setting.  Experience and being a Board member of a start up company which developed a green product gives me assitional insight into the growing green market.
