"Building hope and encouragement has been a priority throughout my personal and professional life. I'm a psychologist who thought I wanted to be in private practice. Then I saw the power that data, research, evaluation and analytics have to inform and advocate for system change – and the potential for making an even bigger difference in people's lives. I’m a passionate advocate for whole person care. Holistic approaches, including behavioral health, can improve outcomes and cost-effectiveness. We can make the world a better place by using data to gain a more complete picture of people and the impact we’re having. And we might even gain more compassion and empathy along the way."
