Chief Medical Officer and Key Opinion Leader
What do you do at Headlands Research and in what circumstances would I come to you for something?
I’m the Chief Medical Officer. My primary responsibility is to ensure the clinical activities across our network are exemplary. We want to ensure that we dramatically improve the clinical trial process while ensuring our patients health and wellbeing. I’ll work with the executive team to help recruit clinicians and explore new business opportunities. Come to me with any issue, if I can’t solve it, I’ll connect you with someone who can.
What energizes you at work?
I really enjoy working on teams with creative, positive and energetic people. When a multitalented group works together, they can achieve success well beyond that of any individual. I’m always willing to learn from those around me. I’m also excited to help others achieve their best potential.
What’s a trip that changed you, and why?
Bhutan. It’s a beautiful, relatively undisturbed country nestled between China and India. First of all, its half way around the world. If you get there, you can go anywhere! Second, they measure “Gross National Happiness”. What a great concept. Their society considers the happiness and wellbeing of its people as they make all important governmental and economic decisions
What’s the best advice you were ever given? Who was it from?
“The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or the one”. Said by Mr. Spock, right after he saved the Enterprise and before his death in Star Trek II - The Wrath of Khan. Seriously, so many great mentors and words of wisdom over the years. Probably the most valuable have come from my wife.
What’s the top destination on your must-visit list?
Machu Picchu. It’s been on the bucket list for quite a while and will be the first place we travel to when we’re able. The remote location, the durability of the construction, and the stunning beauty are all attractions. The fact that it remained unknown to the outside world for centuries is amazing. It will be a physical and spiritual journey.
