An experienced ally immersed in the business of health
Decisive. Creative. Fluent in mitigating risk.

Sneak Peek-6.jpg

Having worked both in-house with Amgen and as outside counsel with a variety of clients, I have a keen ability to translate how evolving health laws and regulations impact your business in your language without the legal jargon.


Beyond the advice, I create a roadmap and help operationalize legal guidance throughout your business. I’ll right-size it based on your business structure and resources and educate your team on industry best practices along the way.
