Enjoying the start-up life working for a company that creates a platform for shared mobility. Carsharing and ridehailing SaaS. It’s fun to be privy to so many companies board level discussions as they look to update their business models as society begins to inch away from traditional car ownership. Fun watching my kids follow their own path with one taking the SF start up route for a computer vision learning company and the other working at the economic institute in DC. And Marianna continues to make a difference as the National Mass Care lead volunteer for the American Red Cross.

I’ve been working for the last month for AnaOno. It's lingerie and loungewear created for women living with breast cancer, by women living with breast cancer. The company has been around for five years, and I’ve been filling in for someone who is out. It has been exhilarating and challenging. It’s exactly what I was looking for; I’m the right-hand person for the founder, and it is a mission-oriented business. I’m learning a ton. My fingers are crossed that when the person I’m filling in for returns, I can stay on. I feel so lucky to have found it!

Started my “second life” leading a healthcare startup for the first time after the past 27 years, post Wharton/Lauder, at a variety of big companies including J&J, Walgreens and The Vitamin Shoppe. Now I’m leading Juvenescence Life, focused on developing scientifically proven therapies for longevity. Still living in Princeton, NJ and a happy family guy with 3 daughters having just celebrated my 28 year anniversary. Just finished some advisory work with Prof Pete Fader which rekindled great Wharton memories!
