My Background

I graduated with a BBA from the University of Iowa, Studying Business Management and Entrepreneurship at the Henry B. Tippie College of Business while performing a consulting role with the University Optometry Clinic.

Embarking on my professional journey, I worked at a Global Medical Device company, Stryker Orthopedics, managing a portfolio of implants and biologics used in spine surgery. My efforts there culminated in regional and national sales performances, carving out profitable biologic sales trajectories, and pioneering new accounts with strategic product introductions.

After tiring of spending so much time in the OR, my career path led me to a national reference laboratory. I managed a state-wide territory, achieved double-digit percentage growth consecutively, and accelerated the Western US monthly rankings.

Entrepreneurship beckoned with Aphelion Medical, where I managed every facet of a medical distributorship focused on the laboratory space, representing toxicology, pharmacogenetic, and infectious disease testing platforms.

I’m now thrilled to be working with The Ambitious Exec as a Senior Career Advisor. Here, we combine our world-class career consulting services with the Referral Engine, our custom in-house job search process that helps VPs, Directors, and executives get hired into higher-paying roles faster by accessing the hidden job market.
