I'm passionate about helping entrepreneurs and investors create a new era in healthcare
We’ve all seen the headlines and heard the lawyer jokes. Surveys say that half of all lawyers wouldn’t enter the profession if they had it to do over or even recommend being a lawyer to their children, so why did I become a lawyer? The reason is simple; I can make a difference. Whether it’s helping life sciences and biotech spinouts become companies that can develop novel therapies or working with startups to help them bring new technologies like virtual reality, augmented reality and artificial intelligence, to market, I get to help these entrepreneurs and investors, create a new era in healthcare.
From genetic research and emergency room management to clinical trials, virtual nurses and drug discovery, these new technologies are already changing how we interact with healthcare globally; and as a lawyer in this sector, I get to be a part and work alongside an industry that has the potential to redesign how health care is done and how consumers access and use it.
Now, do you want to hear a lawyer joke?
