Chief Prod Officer

Executive intrapreneur turned digital health entrepreneur, my career includes over 14 years leading global drug development and healthcare innovation.

As Chief Product Officer and Partner at THREAD, I lead our efforts to change the way clinical research and care is delivered as the leader in our mobile-first, omni-channel platform delivered via Apple’s open-source SDKs ResearchKit, CareKit and Android's ResearchStack. THREAD contributed to 4 of the first 8 ResearchKit studies and works with Biopharmaceutical companies, healthcare providers/academic researchers, CROs and payers to provide our platform to leaders in the remote patient research and care revolution.

Our platform is enabling our customers to design and launch mobile health studies in Phase 2/3 clinical trials, observational studies and registries. Check us out @ or send me an email @ to learn more.

Named one of the Top 100 Influencers in Digital Health, I provide expertise and execution experience in digital health strategy, remote patient research and care, virtual clinical trials, Phase I - IV clinical research, patient reported outcomes, patient engagement, mobile health, omni-channel experience and virtual reality.

I enjoy being a keynote speaker at global industry events, guest lecturer at Duke University on digital health/innovation and a published author featured in various conferences, journals, articles and media outlets.
