There’s so much value in leveraging others and in failing.”

About her work, she said, “It’s no secret that health care is a huge issue in our country but the answers aren’t easy and achieving greater value will require dramatic change. It’s simultaneously exciting and daunting, which is the kind of work that energizes me.”
