Why did you join Deallus?
Despite the promise inherent in the volume of breakthrough therapeutic innovations, challenging questions persist as to how these advances will be tested in research, regulatory, and marketplace contexts. I engage in work that reframes these challenges, raises implications, and enables stakeholders to navigate the complexities of a system defined by constant change. I feel the most rewarded in my work when I can drive product and portfolio level strategic assessments, convey the impact of the latest R&D breakthroughs, and contextualize opportunity across therapeutic landscapes to a variety of stakeholders.
I also chose Deallus because of the people. We’re all very bright on our own but we work well together as a team and that’s fun to be part of. Development is a real priority here and I like being part of that, whether it’s helping to train new joiners or getting coaching from the leadership that helps us improve.
Life outside of work
I love live music – I went to see Tame Impala recently at MSG. I also love exploring NYC. I like to travel – the next places in the US that are on my list are New England and the Pacific Northwest. I grew up outside Chicago so I am a Bears fan, which was fun last year but… less so this year.
