Senior Director @ Hilton | Ex-McKinsey Strategy Consultant | Passionate Problem Solver and Team Builder
I am a passionate, disciplined and mission-driven leader, who is excited about building great teams, setting strategy, and driving sustainable change. A common thread through my career is a focus on improving how healthcare is delivered. I started my career as an engineer at GE Healthcare, developing software and conducting research that went into MRI machines. I followed that with a ~10 year stint as a consultant at Deloitte and McKinsey, focusing primarily on serving health providers, retailers, PBMs and insurance companies on a variety of operational and strategic topics. Currently, I serve as the health plan sponsor for Hilton’s national health plan, focusing on providing affordable and accessible coverage to 60K frontline Hilton employees. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two young children and staying active in the DC / VA community, serving on the board of a local non-profit, and volunteering to mentor college students from under-represented communities.
