I'm a parent and a taxpayer and a Healthcare Technology executive. Like many of you, I am also a chauffeur, a daughter of an aging parent, a tutor, and a spouse who (all too infrequently) gets to sit on the couch, watch a movie, and eat nachos.
I have four kids who span the Natick elementary, middle and high schools this year, so I believe I can represent many of you as we make hard choices about priorities while facing an imperative to invest responsibly in students and teachers. I have been a very active participant in the School Committee and budget discussions for the last 3 years, and am ready to jump in and serve this community.
I am also a professional with decades of experience building and launching technology products that help bring novel therapies to sick patients, provide crucial data to scientists and even deliver packages to your front door within a day of ordering. In this role, I am rarely the expert … I am not the doctor, the scientist, the data scientist or the technologist. I live at the intersection of knowledge and experience to help people collaborate effectively, people who frequently have very different ways of communicating and processing information.
My experience has taught me how to do 5 things very well:
Actively listen when someone voices a problem
Define ideal outcomes
Model costs and ROI
Lead teams in respectful and collaborative problem solving
