How I can help you
I can help you in areas that cover the management, administration and finance of your business. My industry experiences include senior positions in healthcare, retailing, wholesale distribution and insurance. I have also founded and operated two businesses: Premier Health Programs (consulting) and University Health Plans (insurance). I have analyzed countless opportunities, negotiated deals, hired key staff, set up offices and networks and made tough decisions. I also have multiple experience dealing with regulatory processes.
I currently provide management consulting services to select clients engaged in healthcare. I also teach graduate courses in Finance, Quality and Strategy at a local college.
In addition to SCORE, my volunteer interests include the New York Botanical Gardens (clerical and horticultural assignments), Yonkers Partners In Education (mentor), and the NYS Senior Medicare Patrol (lecturing seniors about medicare fraud awareness). I also serve as a board member of the Scarsdale Public Library.
My style of management has been charcterized as one of "open door": I value all staff members for what they can contribute. Yet, I have the drive to push a business forward, and have demonstarted that numerous times in my career.
On the lighter side, I love international travel, tennis, hiking, and am an excellent photographer. I also like to bake and cook, and refinish furniture.
