I oversee the Executive Master of Healthcare Administration program for working health care professionals and development of new educational offerings. I have designed and delivered health care innovation and service design courses since 2006. My teaching focuses on providing our next generation of health care leaders with the knowledge, tools, and skills to make our health care system work better for people who need care. 

In my professional career, I advise health care organizations on how to deliver better services for their customers. Those organizations include Optum, Mayo Clinic, and UnitedHealth Group.
