Describe how the work you do supports our mission.
I think that my job is to keep the vision at the front of everyone’s mind so that we’re all working towards the same goal each day. I work every day making sure that we are executing to that vision and that my team is being challenged, fulfilled, and able to bring their whole self to their work.
What do you love about your work?
First, I’m surrounded by amazing people who inspire me every day with their passion, drive and creativity. What more could one ask for than to work with teammates who you learn so much from and make you a better leader? It’s a dream job that I’m blessed to have. Secondly, the biotech industry is full of passionate people who wake up every day and go to work to advance medicine and improve human health. I can’t think of a better group of people to serve every day. They inspire us to do our best and support this community because we’re all stakeholders in their success.
